PostSubject: Gliese 581d - Super Earth   Mon Oct 05, 2009 10:38 pm

Link to wikis article on the planet: Gliese 581d

Gliese 581 d (pronounced /ˈɡliːzə/) or Gl 581 d is an extrasolar planet approximately 20 light-years away in the constellation of Libra. Because of its mass, nearly 8 times that of Earth, the planet is classified as a super-Earth. In late April 2009, new observations by the original discovery team concluded that the planet is within the habitable zone where liquid water, and therefore, life, could exist.


It's also considered to be a likely candidate to be an ocean planet. A lot of fuss has been made over this planet due to its potential for life.

What should it be called?

Nu ? In the egyptian mythology, it was the primordial ocean, from which the first god, and thus life, was created.

I propose we name the planet (Gliese 581 d) by "hydronium."
I chose this name because the term "hydro" refers to water and by adding the "onium" to the end you make the planet sound like an element, which is a pun to this planet possibly being an earth in the elemental stages.

How about 'Psyche' meaning life or soul?
Eudaimonia is a cool name, too, but it doesn't really have much to do with the planet.

I propose : "Sparta"

That is in reference the the ancient greek city:

1) Sparta=harsh life.
All unknown conditions of that planet set aside, its heavy gravity must make (hypothetic) life harsher there than on Earth.

2) Sparta=survival of the fittest.
Spartans killed their 'unfit' newborns cold-blooded. As horrifying as it is, this is pretty much what Natural Selection does on us, living creatures. My imagination wants the same phenomenon to have happened over on Gliese 581d (let there be life over there!)

3) Sparta=city with no wall
I like to think of that potentially livable planet as one country with no border. (sphericity)

If you like this idea, say "Hay!" cheers

If it is truly an ocean planet perhaps it could be named "Oceanus"

Oceanus would be a fitting name because according to wikipedia the ancient Greeks and Romans believed it to be a "world ocean" or giant stream that encircled the earth.

I read the naming guidelines before I began to compose this post, and while I realize that this falls under #5 under Naming and Voting Guidelines ("Do not post a name from famous fiction, like Star Trek or Star Wars. Post only if there is a VERY GOOD reason!"), I think I have a fairly good reason to propose the following name for Gliese 581d:

I propose Krypton as the name. For fans of Superman, I'm sure you can follow my train of thought here. For non-fans, here is my justification and explanation:

-Krypton in the Superman series is an Earth-like planet. Gliese 581d is said to be Earth-like. (That's the reason it's been such a big deal, after all!)
-Krypton is said to orbit a "red sun". Gliese 581 is a red dwarf, and obviously Gliese 581d orbits it.
-Krypton has a stronger gravitational pull than Earth. Gliese 581d has a higher gravitational pull than Earth.

IMO, there are enough similarities between what we know of the two planets (even though one is fictional) to warrant this name.

Was 581d also destroyed when its star exploded? Smile

the originator of "Ymir" for this, which has quite a few citations now:

http://gnews.wustl.edu/gn131/gliese581c.htm

personally, i think that name better fits a cold, icy world, rather than one which is half warm...

PostSubject: best name ever for a planet!   Thu May 27, 2010 1:10 pm

Idea ok here it is, the best name for any exoplanet. Wait for it, wait for it, ....... drum roll please................ Mourna. I conceived of this particular name from the word "mourn". Because eventually we are all doomed to either a cataclysmic event or gradual slow demise. Everything we do or know or speak is ultimately insignificant on the grand scheme of Our inevitable non- existance. Thank you for your time. Shocked[b]

Hmmm, i would suggest a common name: something we could all use like NextEarth of a more common name: BigEarth or EarthII ....

Why come up with names like Mourna, Nu, Ymir ??????? Pfff might as well call it : Gliese581d

But yeah i guess we can call it Galactopoid while we are at it ...

PostSubject: How about Tiamat?   Wed Jun 02, 2010 4:36 pm

In Babylonian myths, Tiamat is a huge, bloated female dragon that personifies the saltwater ocean, the water of Chaos. She is also the primordial mother of all that exists, including the gods themselves.

I do not think any planets should be named after a city-state, not should we give it anything less than an original name. When I say original I do not mean it has to be completely new, only that it is not named New [insert old name] or naming it after another place.

Personally I like the name Nu. It may be too short though, a rather simple word. Also this word sounds rather similar to 'new' so that may not be ideal.

The best name I have seen so far would be Tiamat. Fits with the planet more or less and seems like a fairly unique word.

Thanks, Neil. I'm a pretty staunch supporter of the traditional "name things after mythological beings" method. I have access to tons of ancient deities and heroes, so be prepared for more!

What about Leviathan? He's a well known sea monster often seen in Christianity, Judaism, Hebrew, and even Satanism. Many other creatures have been named after him in videogames and anime. Why not a planet now, too?

PLANET LEVIATHAN

Sounds pretty neat, doesn't it? Square Enix would be proud.
