I was curious to whether you would call Martian soil earth or mars. I ask because we call dirt here earth.. lol..

Or if we settle in another solar system, do we still call the local star "The Sun" and would Solar panels still be "Solar" panels. Would lunatics, still be Lunatics without Luna? And if I break my axe handle one year and replace it, then the head dulls the next year and I replace it. Is it still the same axe? In T.S. Eliots "Four Quartets" is the man boarding the train, really not the same man who was reading the paper and waiting for the train?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

I'm one of the few people that think these are valid questions. I like questions. Can't help it.

To answer the original question...

You call it "Mars".
