True, wikipedia has a list - List of largest stars - Wikipedia.

BUT! You'll notice our sun is used as the reference point for star size, much like photographers use 35mm/FullFrame as the reference point. I submit that the Sun - FullFrame analogy fits and all those larger stars are analogous to Medium and Large Formats.

Think in terms of the ratio of the images you need then frame and shoot them so you get the best fit rather than framing first for 3:2 and then belatedly cropping to the ratio you need.

Both of those ratios are closer to 3:1 than 3:2. One strategy is to place the subjects in the center of the frame vertically and ensure they don't exceed halfway to the edge either up or down. This gives you a little wiggle room in cropping. Then fill nearly side to side but leave a little space. Doing this will get you shots that fit the format you need.

If you find your going over the imaginary lines too much try using only the bottom or top half of the frame. It may be easier at first to judge.
