Who named the sun?

    Language and words for objects are a pretty complicated subject. Most cultures use their own words for objects and ideas that they observe themselves. In other words, cultures are not likely to borrow words for things like arm, brother, love, ect. They do borrow words for objects that are unknown before getting them from another culture. For example the English language borrowed tomato from Spanish. Who got the name likely from the South American natives where the plant is from. I imagine that all cultures had their own name for the sun because like your arm or your brother it is something that everyone would observe without meeting any people from another culture.

    That being said there is no official name for our sun according to the International Astronomical Union (the official celestial body namers).
