Perhaps we should extrapolate a name base on the names of our orbs in the sky,

In the fictional Star Trek universe, a planet is designated by its number outward from the named star.
"Ceti Alpha Five" (upon which Khan had been exiled) would be the fifth planet out from the star Menkar (a.k.a., Ceti alpha) in the Cetus constellation and Menkar system.
Therefore, we would be Sol-three in the Solar System.
In other words, our system does have a name-- named after the star, Sol, thus: "Solar"
