Can anyone point me towards a listing of common star names for the FK5?

I've been going through Wikipedia, one star at a time compiling common name, constellation and greek letter for the FK5 and I have lost my enthusiasm after a hundred or so stars.

Surely someone (with more fortitude) has already done this...and I tried google and found nothing useful...

Thanks, Scott.
