It's called "The solar system". While scientists have been able to discover planets circling around stars other than our own, they haven't found anything to compare to the solar system, so there has never been a reason to name it anything else.

No name yet.
But there is a strong rumor it's soon going to be officially named The American Express Solar System.

Just as our sun is "sun" (or "sol") our solar system is our solar system.

The galaxy that our solar system is in may have a name.

Milky Way.

Though as cjhsa's excellent link notes, technical writers on the subject (of which my husband is one) just say "the Galaxy".

They gotta just say "The Galaxy".

Glad to see Ken came back, most first time posters never post again.

But I do have one question.

Ken, can you hear me?

I always wanted to name the moon.

How about "Little Mars"?

It was good enough for Lincoln's horse, besides it means--Best Of Breed) .

Actually I think is Sol's system and it's in the Micky Way Galaxy (after the candy bar--not the mouse).

@kendogg,
The solar system has been named. According to one certain A2K-er its name has been changed to JGoldman10. Twisted Evil
