Jewish people called it Judea in the 1st century.

Judea-Samaria - Samaria was Northern Judea, an area controlled by the Samaritans.

Judah during the Civil War Period when the Northern Kingdom declared war on the Southern Kingdom.

The area was called Israel before the Civil War Period about 800 B.C. and when the Assyrian Empire attacked in 727 B.C. they annexed the area and carried off the population into captivity.

Israel has also been called Jacob, Canaan and land of the Philistines.
