We use words not understanding their meaning

When we say "dark matter" the words are not arbitrary.

This hypothesized matter is called "matter" because it
has gravitational mass. It is called "dark" because it
isn't radiating energy we can see.

Who are we?

We are the race of Adam. Whose first job in the Garden of Eden
was naming things.

'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful
tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor
less.'

Language did not come from God. Language is an agreement between
people.

Does anyone know when and by whom the
phrase 'dark matter' was first coined?

I get in the 1930s by Fred Zwicky (1933 - 1937, somewhere in
there), but he may have called it "missing mass". I do not have
a direct quote.

From what I have read, he is credited with first noticing
the missing mass, but I have seen nothing that says
he used the phrase 'missing mass' or 'dark matter'. From
what I have seen, it looks like 'dark matter' did not
appear until much later.

Still no quote. Actual name "Fritz" rather than Fred. Quite a
character.
