I'm supposing you mean Gaia?
It is a nice name, but we don't call the Earth that anymore,
so it does'nt really count.

Terra is used also in other languages?
Terra (italian)= Earth
In Portuguese we have many words that came from Latin, and some are used without any change, like Terra.
Some words that I remember that I think are exactly (or almost exaclty) like those in Latin are porta (door), vitória (victory), óptimo (I don't remember the English word, I think optimal is not quite the same), cela (cell, small room), célula (small cell), etc.
"Earth". The personified Roman goddess of the earth. She is also a fertility goddess, known as Bona Dea.

I think the name of the Earth is obvious... Nobody saw it as a planet of it's own back in the day.
