"Dear Robert, I think it would be better if humans would change my name and replace it by what I have really become, namely the planet Business. It would remove the feminine aspect of my nature and make me what I really am now, namely a males' planet."
You may be right. As a matter of fact, this gives me an idea: the Earth Council established on the magnificent grounds of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica should draw up a world list of the words used for the Earth, their etymology and meaning in all languages. This would give us a precious idea of how humans in the different places of the world perceived you. I know only a very few:
In Greek, Gaya was a goddess who whirled as a nebula in the universe and became the Earth. Western scientific words use it profusely: geology, geometry, geophysics, geography, etc. (geo being a contraction of gaya).
In German, die Erde comes from goddess Eartha; the same origin of the English Earth.
The Latin Terra, French Terre, Spanish Terra, etc. are all feminine.
I will suggest it to Celine Cousteau, who works at the Earth Council,
"I would like that because I loved so much Captain Jacques Cousteau, her grandfather."

Walk through life lightly with little baggage, like an angel. Do not be overburdened, too earthbound, too goodsbound. Like angels keep your head and soul in heaven.*
