Who named Earth? It may be something we've all learned in school but for most of us, it's likely information we all have filed away as... not vital information.

Branded. 

Sponsored by Colgate. Because when we colonize the solar system and people from Venus go on a space tour, the tourist can say "That is Sponsored By Colgate, our origin planet" and people will remember to brush their teeth before they go to bed. YusTeez

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.
