If we ever find intelligent life somewhere in space we could name their planet "Mars"
To everybodies surprise we would have found intelligent life on planet Mars.

Excellent idea! We certainly wouldn't want to call it Earth because everyone in the Universe knows there's no intelligent life there.

"If the planet ever is terraformed, it will be done by human beings whose permanent residence and planetary affiliation is Mars. The Martians will be us."
-- Carl Sagan, Cosmos, Chapter V "Blues for a Red Planet"

Thus there will be intelligent life found on Mars. The sooner the better!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
--- Margaret Mead

They've probably got enough sense to live on Mars rather than Earth!!!
