In Chinese, 危宿 (Wēi Sù), meaning Rooftop, refers to an asterism consisting of θ Pegasi, α Aquarii and ε Pegasi. Consequently, θ Pegasi itself is known as 危宿二 (Wēi Sù èr, English: the Second Star of Rooftop.)
Theta Pegasi is of spectral class A2 and has apparent magnitude +3.53. It is approximately 97 light years from Earth. This star has 2.6 times the Sun's radius and it is radiating 25 times the luminosity of the Sun from its outer envelope at an effective temperature of 7,951 K.
