Why have we, in the hundred thousand years of human development, not named the moon that orbits Earth?
Its name is Luna you fucking garbage.

Don't be silly.
If there WAS such a movement and a popular vote was taken, "Jim" wouldn't even be in the running.

The Moon is called "the Moon". How fucking retarded are people? The Moon isn't called that because it's a moon and people were just lazy, moons are named after the Moon. The entire category of objects was named after the Moon, not the other way around.

It's very common to name objects after their prototype; Cepheid variables, RR Lyrae stars, galaxies. To rename the original would defeat the point.

Luna is the Latin name. English is the modern language of science and in English it's the Moon. Capital letter is important, just like the Galaxy.

Our galaxy has an actual name. It's called the Milky Way.

Yes those are root words. It doesn't mean you will find a scientific paper calling the Earth "Terra".

The Galaxy is a name. The word Galaxy actually comes from the Greek "galaxias" which means milky way. Before other galaxies were known to be much beyond ours galaxies were called Spiral Nebulae, and later became Island Universes and then, galaxies. The Galaxy gave it's name to all galaxies. Astronomers still refer to galactic and extragalactic astronomy to mean about the Milky Way and beyond it.

You're right, our moon's a girl in most of the cultures that have existed. All the myths I've ever heard at least.
