Default Na'Vi Word For Pandora...

I was just curious as to wha it is. If they even have a word for their planet that is...

If I recall correctly, they call simply it Eywa? This is either me remembering something or a huge shot in the dark. I think my reasoning is sound as Eywa is the energy in all things, so why not?
It could also be that they haven't grasped the concept of planets and moons () but seeing as they see the other moons of Polyphemus in the sky and Polyphemus itself, they may have a basic idea.

Now that I think of it...it does bring this interesting question. I think they only go as far as believing Eywa "made" them and their planet, as well as all around them (in space). Interesting... *goes back to pondering about Pandora*

oh oh! I know this! XD

I'm pretty sure it's called "kifkey Eywa'evenga," which means something like "the planet of Eywa's children" (something to that extent). I can't remember where I found this...but I know I saw it somewhere.

Dreamwalker is right.
It can be either Eywa'eveng (Child of Eywa) or kifkey Eywa'evengä (The world of Eywa's children)

I see. Thanks for letting me know.

(and yeah I made a bit of a mix-up there as Pandora is technically a moon. Thanks Sacred )

Kifkey means world, rather than specifically planet.

Awfully clunky; doesn't roll off the tongue like Mars.

Me, I just call the planet (er, moon) Eywa, like Gaia for Earth.

Eywa isn't actually Pandora, that would be like calling Earth 'Humans'.

Not really, calling Earth 'humans' would mean you'd call Pandora 'Na'vi'
