I was recently thinking about how weird the word Earth is. If this planet is the root of humanity then we should have a cool name for it. Sign here if you want to change Earth's name!

Oh, and I don't really have any alternative names, so I guess we could makes this a suggestion for different names too.

Earth's not a cool name? Poor Earth Day.. :(

#3 Posted by Shawn (3825 posts) -

Of course its not, heck I'd rather have this planet called Jupiter.

I thought Gaia was a pretty fancy name.

Lets call it pluto. Since pluto isn't a planet anymore we need a new pluto. Why can't it be the earth?

I support the names Jupiter, Gaia, and Pluto.

I think Jupiter might be taken though.

Sol 3?

Actually, "Earth" is pretty cool when you think about it. We could have done worse, considering we didn't even know what it was when we named it.

Earth, is definitely not cool. It's pronounced urth. That's just ugly.

Let's call it Guinness because it sounds pretty cool and tastes great.

Do you think Microsoft has enough money/power to change Earths name to Microsoft?

I like it known as Terra, first heard that in MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat  and wondered what it meant since clearly they were on the Moon overlooking Earth in the finale cinematic but they called it Terra... thought it was a sci-fi thing until reading up on it. Love the term.

Let's call it Sera.

I happen to like the sound of "Earth". Sounds very organic, like Earth is.

I want to name it "super cool awesome place, except for maybe the moon which might be a little cooler even though it's smaller."  People keep telling me it's too long though.

#48 Posted by YetiAntics (1489 posts) -

Earth is only the english name of it. 
I do believe that the planet is still called Terra (meaning land). Its just been translated. 
i blame the english!
