That's a strange crossword! Is it possible that she has the "N" wrong?

I think speedfreek has the most likely suggestion. The only five-letter names in Virgo are Spica, Arich, Syrma and Zania(h).

Delta is also called Auva (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delta_Virginis). [edit -- but I obviously can't count to 5!] I think gamma (Arich) is the second brightest in Virgo.

Well, the brightest star in Virgo has the names Azimech, Alarph, or Spica Virginis.

The second brightest is known as Porrima, Arich or Gamma Virginis.

(Ahh, I see Nick beat me to it!)

But that must be one heck of a specialist crossword! Is there a prize?
