Who named our planet Earth?I was going through the Hindi names of the planets in our solar system when I realised that our Earth is not named after any day of the week nor after any god or goddess. I quickly searched on Google and found out that the name Earth is derived from both English and German words, 'eor(th)e/ertha' and 'erde', respectively. The words mean soil, ground or land. Later I came to know that it is the only planet that's not named after either a Greek or Roman god or goddess. I searched more and came to know that the exact names of people who named other planets in our solar system (except Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) are not known yet it is known that the Romans named them after their deities. But, no one knows who/which community/country named our planet.
Do members know anything regarding the name of our planet?
