Milky Way

As you are probably aware, the name of our Galaxy to which our star belongs is Milky Way. Now step back and think for a moment. We named our Galaxy after the white fluid all mammals crave and enjoy, the fluid which comes from all mammals’ mothers’ breasts. We, mammals, like this life bringing beverage so much, that we’ve decided to name the bright stripe of stars which cuts through the midnight sky after it. I am sure that if another civilization was studying us, they would certainly find it at least curious, probably even hilarious.

If the dinosaurs managed to develop higher intelligence, how would they name it? How can other civilizations be naming it, assuming many of them don’t know the taste of milk?
