And don't say sol or luna. That's just Latin for sun and moon so unless your name is Boy or Girl don't go there.
I propose they both be named after me. As a matter of fact, I officially call dibs on it.

If I look at the sun, I get a Smarty in my eyeballs. Solar eclipses are the devils work.

And In SmartyPants, there is always a moon
Unless like me, you wear them on your head.

idk, we name suns many things. usually numbers. SOL isn't so different. the moon though, I call it Ol' Stink eye. peering down on me like a one eyed drunk at night, making me do bad things..

Good old loony and sunny. Without them I'd never know what time of day it is.

those are two celestial bodies identifiable with the naked eye.
that's a possible reason why they are not named but only referred to as their generic purposes.

Oh, there's quite a few.

en.wikipedia.org...

Or, you can just call the Moon by my daughter's name. It originates from the Phoenician goddess of love, fertility, the moon, and the stars.
[ I actually named her after a favorite author of mine, Tanith Lee ]

[ I don't know why, but I always have to tell people how to pronounce it. It's not Tuh-neeth, it's Ta- nith ]

The wet ocean and the wetter ocean, would disagree.

but the slightly damp lake might say otherwise, as long as the very dry sand land is in agreeance.

Sol is the Roman equivalent of the Greek sun god Helios. And maybe in earlier times English-speakers did use these names. According to straightdope.com, the first cited use of Sol as a proper name for the sun is the 1450

earthsky.org...

So although no names we can say the sun is (was) known as Helios I suppose.

They have as many name's as there have been culture's on this earth, to me THE moon is our moon but to distinguish it many sci fi book's refer to it as Lunar, the Sun is the heart of the SOLAR system so is actually SOL which is probably derived from the Latin word for THE SUN.

So our Solar system is the Sol System, alien Solar systems are seldom named but you can call them more scientifically accurately for example the Betelgeuse system or the Gliese 581 system or the Centauri system(s there is more than one, alpha and beta and of course our closest neighbor proxima named from Latin for close or promimity).

Best guess but it is only as accurate as you want it to be is Sol and Lunar and the earth by the same reasoning is Terra.

I recommend "Helios Alpha" for the sun. Since it is the first sun the human race identified.
As for the Earth, that would likely be "Helios Alpha 3".
Our moon, Helios Alpha 3a.

What do you mean dont go there? I thought science named all animals and plants and even places in the world in latin? Arent our courts mixed with latin as well??
Sol and Luna is what I notice Star Trek calls them. I think it fits.

Perhaps we could use firey names for the sun like Helioférno or Ultima. Or just fireball.
I don't know what else to call the moon except Luna.

SCI FI genre of OLD, generally accepts the terms Terra and Sol.

They had to make up something, in their books their characters were asked what planet or star system they were from...

what do you say?

I'm MissSmartypants, is cool too.

The sun is called sol but officially the sun covers it. If you wish to be more specific there are astrological symbols.

This is very sensitive topic. We don't want to get those Sun and Moon worshippers all worked up and trying to remove each others statues and historical figures.
