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. Information that of course becomes fascinating late in life. Who got to have that honor and why? And could they have some up with something far more interesting? Like Thomas.

Redditor u/ObserverOfReddit wanted to hear about some possible options besides "Earth" by asking.... If you had to rename Earth, what would you name it?


Balls.

When the aliens come, and they will, we just say "Welcome to Erf." CrackerJackBunny

And Goofy?

Pluto, so it can be a planet again. That'll show 'em.
