    Double Bayer letters

    Just a quick query (impossible to google) When a star has a double Bayer designation, like EZ Aquarii or GQ Andromedae, is that an extension of the single letter designation beyond the first 50 odd numbers? I assume it is but can't verify it.
    "Occam" is the name of the alien race that will enslave us all eventually. And they've got razors for hands. I don't know if that's true but it seems like the simplest answer."

    Those aren't Bayer letters, they're variable star designators.
