Is there any scientific name for "The Moon", Earth's satellite, when talking about it apart from, but in context of, other moons? Google simply states that

Earth's only natural satellite is simply called the moon because people didn't know other moons existed until Galileo Galilei discovered four moons orbiting Jupiter in 1610. Other moons in our solar system are given names so they won't be confused with each other.

It seems sort of dumb to just call the moon "The moon"Moon" because we never knewhad a classification for what it was calledis/was. I'm guessing it has some sort of astronomical name. The main difference between The Sun and The Earth and their English naming conventions is that we don't call other planets "Earths" and other stars "Suns", at least not in a scientific sensesense; we tend to use it informally rather.

So, does The Moon have an agreed upon international astronomical name, such as Luna or something like that? And while we're at it, there must also be a name for "The Sun" (It might be Sol) and our solar system?
