Who named the organs inside our body?

and how long ago was it? (that someone named the organs in our body.)

Since animals we eat also have livers, kidneys and hearts, these were probably first named by butchers who prepared animal carcasses for human consumption. And then, once it was apparent that these corresponded with organs in humans, the names transferred to human anatomy as well.

People have had names for organs almost as long as they've had language. Hippocrates, who lived from 460-377 BC, is an early Greek writer who described many organs in detail. Some of our names for organs are borrowed Greek words (like pancreas) but most originated within English itself.
