How inappropriate to call this planet earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

- Arthur C. Clarke

TLS14:

Urgh76:
I hereby name this planet:

Dirtville! :3

I vote Pegasopolis. Filthy ground-walking peasant.

Surely you mean Bronysopolis. Let these aliens know what to expect right from the start!

"The United States of America(Feat.some other countries)"

Pfft. Never. Bronysopolis conveys a false pretense of unity between the three races. As you could see in the founding of the New World, we clearly aren't unified.

Besides, I think the aliens would like the name Pegasopolis. Pegasi are the most awesome, after all.

Ch@Z:
"The United States of America(Feat.some other countries)"

I lol'd because it's kind of true given America's attitude. However, a few hundred years back, you'd have been calling it "The Empire of Great Britain (feat. a few unconquered Far Eastern territories)".

Camarii:
I've always though it already was Tellus O.o
But if I could choose: Gummibjörn

Or maybe even...bumbibjörn?

Only because that is the common name for Earth and people sy it all the time. Terra is pretty boring if you ask me because using it as a name for Earth in fantasy/sci-fi is a cliche. I'd rather call it Gaea because it's less generic.

Ectoplasmicz:
Keith.

Lets name our planet 'Keith'.

And the moon is 'Ellis' and every planet renamed after characters from games made by Valve.

Gaia, Terra, or Bob.

-Terra
-Celes (Because I like her over Terra in Final Fantasy VI. Terra's a good character, but I just like Celes more!)
-Gaia
-Awesome (Just imagine that conversation with aliens. "We come from the planet Nipnal." "We're from the planet Awesome!" "That's so cool! We should form a band!" AND THEY FORMED THE GREATEST INTERGALACTIC BAND EVER.)
-Alpha (Because we began on this planet.)
-Midrealm

Ectoplasmicz:
Keith.

Lets name our planet 'Keith'.

But then our planet would totally never get laid!

It's totally had its eye on Venus for the last half century!

Captcha: that's hot

Captcha, why do you have a thing for planet sex!?

In Portuguese it is already called Terra. Sun is Sol, Moon is Lua, way prettier than Moon, but Luna would be as pretty.

How about we just keep Earth, because it fits?

GIANT TIT PORN EXPLOSION would probably be more exciting

let's name it Bob

It would stay as Earth in addition to a unique 12-numbr designation that tells us the galaxy, coordinates and unique identifier numbers of our planet. With so many planets, a system like this would be handy in an intergalactic community.

Renaming Earth, the moon and the sun Terra, Luna and Sol is something we should really get on before we discover any alien life. Once we get the babble fish installed, I'd hate to hear THAT conversation:
Alien- So what do you call your sun
Human- The sun
Alien-...

What do you mean "a few hundres years back"? It still is, we just let you think you have self determination :P

Anyway, I vote for Sol-3. When we start meeting alien races, we're going to start running out of names, fast, if we don't be systematic about it.

rhizhim:
-snip-

You forgot one...
USA: America

:D

ED: God damn jk ninjas.

CheeseSandwichCake:
We will call it. . . this land

I think we should call it your grave.

Also I'm up for.
Sol
Gaia
Just plain Earth.
Or the Planet formally known as Earth or PFKAE for short.

Earth? Terrible name for a planet. You might as well call it Dirt. Planet Dirt.

Let's name the planet surrogia and make a species wide hierarchy based on blood color. That should be fun.

MammothBlade:
Babel, after the mythical tower of the old world.

I really, really, really, really like this. From a completely subjective standpoint, I mean. The point when (according to the bible) humanity was divided into it's different races, I.E. when humanity as it is today was really founded.

I think 'Babel' would make a really good name in place of 'Earth'.

As a sugestion for a planet name, how's about this?:

BAD_DATA

If anyone gets where that's from, you may level up.

TimeLord:

Nouw:
Holy Terra is the only suitable name for 'Earth.'

Heretic! The Imperial Truth does not deal in your religious views!

And anyway, to be "Holy Terra" you'd need the corpse of a omnipotent being sitting on an incredibly complex machine deep in the Himalayan Mountains that holds the horrors of the warp at bay for all time.

Damnit! You both beat me too it, bloody ninja's, always ruining my fun.

OT: Nice touch there Timelord with the Imperial Truth from the Great Crusade era, I'm impressed. :D

Earth is already a fantastic name. Earth is simple, one syllable. Say it. It feels like dirt in your mouth. You say Earth, you can almost feel the water soaking into the soil, plants spreading their roots. I agree that Gaia is also a pretty name (I feel nothing for the Terra, save when paired with Firma, but that too is plain. Solid Ground, it pretty much means), but Gaia is wrapped up in a silly mythos. We have Earth, it's good. No storm gods required.

LV-426, the name would scare off would-be invaders.

I vote for Earth. It's a good strong name and it's not pretentious.

I also would be completely fine with Bob. Bob is also a good strong name that doesn't sound pretentious.

Durgiun:
I say we call it Rectum.

'Cause it's the biggest shithole in the universe.

That reminds me of a conversation me and my friend had when we were young and not quite as mature. We would name anything under our control myrectum, myballs, or any similar socially inappropriate body part preceded by my. Our logic told us that nobody would invade just out of plain embarrassment.

OT: Terra has a good argument for it as does Gaia. I can't really think of anything off the top of my head though. However I really like the Symbol for earth.

Holy Terra home of the God Emperor and center of the Imperium of Man is the shortest version I could come up with that appropriate.

I gotta vote against Bob. I know a Bob. Guy is dumber than a fence post.

We should name it... The Spanish Inquisition.
Somebody, please, I've given you the set-up. DO WHAT YOU MUST.

We can't because it just keeps saying "Name already taken".

redisforever:

Me55enger:

You cant call a planet bob.

So now you're the boss? You're the King of Bob?

:D

I love you.

Can we rename it Bob? And all Bobs on Earth are holy people somehow! :D
"Bob bless you", "Holy Bob!", "Oh my Bob..."
Its genius.

Tom Milner:

Regnes:
The Earth's proper name is Terra, just like The Sun's name is actually Helios.

incorrect. it's "sol"

anyway, terra would waork fine for me. just nothing rediculous.

Yeah our sun is Sol. Which I as a kid always found interesting, since that is also how we spell sun in norwegian :)

And We live in the Sol System, which is a solar system :)

I vote for Aiur!

MY LIFE FOR AIUR!!
