Actually, the Earth has another name, Gaia, the Greek goddess, and mother of all creation.
Gaia is also referred to as "Mother Nature" or "Mother Earth".

Earth's other name would more properly be Terra, which is Gaia's Roman name.

Earth is named after the Bablyonian god, Ea.

The Babylonians belived there was Ea, the ground we walk on, Anu, the sky, and Enlil, the air inbetween.

They believed the sky was held up by pillars, and one day they'd fall and the sky itself would drop onto them and crush them all.

I think the name you're looking for is Terra, which is Latin for "earth/ground."

In addition, Gaia is a being/presence who pre-dates the titans in the traditional Greek creation myth; all of the other planets were given the names of the Roman gods, who were basically the same, but thought Rome was the place to be after Romulus killed Remus over it during roughly 750 B.C.

Be that as it may, the Earth still has such a name.

It's like using multiple online usernames. Just because you're only active one is the most recent, it doesn't mean all the others are gone or obsolete.

Gaia was a titan, not a godess. She was the mother to the olympian gods.


Moreover, I think you're thinking of Tellus, the roman counterpart of Gaia, which is the name of our planet.

Titans and Gods in greek mytho is basically the same thing, seeing as the Titans are "gods of creation" and the gods are "gods of upholding creation".

not quit, Edison could not invent for crap, but he did use electrocute many things for that reason and convinced the government to replace hangings as a means of execution

Edison wasn't a real inventor, the only thing he was any good at was running to the patent office with things other people like his assistants invented, he was a cock.

For example, he was told by Tesla that x-rays could be dangerous, and was told NOT to test it on people. So he then decided to test it on himself, ended up half blind, so tested them on an assistant who then died.

He also payed street urchins to steal cats and dogs for him, which he publicly executed on Tesla's power lines, claiming that Tesla's energy was too dangerous for public use.

Nor did he lift.

Earth has many names.
Earth\Tellus\Gaia\Terra
allmost all planets are named after ROMAN gods and not GREEK as it's commonly believed. Earth too. Gaia is a godess.

Saturn on the other hand was not named after a God but actually after a Titan, who was the father of Jupiter, Pluto, and Neptune
