The Daughter Also Rises

Why do we call the sun, that which heats the earth, the sun?

Why do we assign any word to mean anything, something?

Sun sounds like son. Say it in your mind; they both sound the same.

“The Sun (Son) Also Rises”, as in Ernest Hemingway.

You can be sure of one thing, “the sun will rise tomorrow”.

How about, ‘the daughter will also rise?’ –  sounds more appropriate since the sun (son) already rose.

How about, you can be sure of one thing, “the daughter will rise tomorrow?”

Imagine, if you can, how the world would be different, if the scientists had named the sun (son) daughter.
