A star would cost you around $20 to purchase it. You will then incur another $80 though this price varies depending on the star. Some companies tend to offer you the chance to name the star for you hence you have to know what you want before getting to it.

I don't know exactly how much, but anything you pay is a rip-off, because those companies are run by charlatans. They can't sell names of stars. The names of stars that the astronomical society and astronomers use are determined by a systematic naming method. Those are the only accepted names. These company sell you an illusion you have named a star, no more. All they promise you is that they will publish it in a book of names, and that book will get a classification number by the Library of Congress. What they don't tell you is that any book published in the US is classified by the Library of Congress by law, and that is no attestation to the truth of what's written in the book, or its acceptance by anyone that counts. Spend your hard earned money in a better way!
