Astronauts vs Cosmonauts

Who came up with the better name for space traveler: the US or the Soviets?

If you try to be objective and forget the fact that "Astronaut" is more of a household word, they're both pretty cool names. But i think Cosmonaut gets the edge.

Also, an honorable mention to the Chinese name, which translates to "sailing personnel in the universe", which is awesome.
