Proposed name: Antioch

Justification for the name: "'Antioch' was an ancient city on the easter side of the Orantes River in Anatolia. 'Antioch' the place where Christian,Jewish,Muslim,Syriac and many other people belonging to different religions live in peace for centuries, is known as the cradle of the religions. The historic story of the city is an important factor in the origin of this peaceful atmosphere. This place, where The azan sounds mix with churc bells is an ascription to the humanity. 'Antioch' means brotherhood, therefore it would be a very meaningful message to send greetings to the earth and humans with the name 'Antioch' from far away, from the deepest part of the space."
