More Information

Mars and Jupiter have two names, as do other planets in our solar system. There's the "scientific" name and the nickname that the Klingons learned after encountering and engaging with Terrans. In talking with Terrans, or in Terran-y contexts, the nicknames are more common.
(Marc Okrand to Jack bradley for In The Year 2889)
In a separate list, Okrand gave the scientific name for Mars as Sol loS and Jupiter as Sol vagh.
Based on that information, it can be concluded that all planet names in the solar system can be numbered, and the Terran sun is named Sol.
