And the correct name, since it is from Filistia, the ancient Canaanite land. It is Palestine that is a mispronunciation, made probably by the Greeks, as Herodotos is the first to record the version "Palaestina" in his Histories c. 440BC. The Greeks replaced the "f" phoneme with a "p" and the Romans used the Greek version, hence it is the Western version due to the Greco-Roman legacy. Most cannot pronounce Palestine, saying "Balestine," since the "b" phoneme does not exist in the language. But Falasteen is the name. And it does not come from a Roman god, you are historically unbalanced.
