Better question, ask them what they call it.  I'd like to see what sort of random space designation they gave us.

Is there a name (or designation) for this solar system?
If so it might be called the third rock from that sun.

Either Earth or Terra. Anything that has to do with Sol is pointless, because that's short for Solar or whatever, and this is the only inhabited planet in the system, not including the possibility of Mars.

coloradochaz: In ST, they call it the Terra system.  Thisrd Rock from the Sun, haha.

When you think about it, 'Earth' is really a stupid name for a planet.  Basically our planet is called 'Dirt', or 'Ground'.

Earth...what an unimaginiative name. We've come up with all sorts of cool names for alien planets in science fiction, why can't we use something besides a word synonymous with DIRT?
