Whate is the meaning of an address listed as *. (followed by a name)? There are quite a few listings like this and there are some without *. in front

the asterisk is a wildcard symbol. it covers any variation of a text string.

basically it means anything and can be used at the beginning, the end, or in between to cover all variations from any particular address.

someone that knows more about this than i do can probably give you a better explanation but i hope this helps.
