I like the kenning "wandering stars"
There is a kenning as well for the sun in Old English that is the daeg candel ("day candle") and in Shakespearean English for the moon "moist star" --I wonder if it wasn't Shakespeare himself that made that word up?? I should have said Anglo-Saxon instead of Old english--this is the english before the 12th Century basically. There are many unique words and meanings that have changed through time: clud "rock" where our word "cloud" comes from strangely, scrud "attire" where shroud comes from, wolcan (clump or ball; cloud) where the word welkin comes from. In old english dream meant "joy" or what makes joy-- most often "music", thus dreamcræft was music-making, dremere was musician. Leoþ (a poem), Leoþwyrhta--"poemwright:a poet", leoþ-cræft "poetry" This is just a small sample.

They must have had some way of refferring to what we refer to as universe.
