What was the earth's first supercontinent called?

F - Pangaea.

Rodinia. Pangea is the third known supercontinent.

The first is called Rodinia, it began to break apart roughly 750 million years ago. Next came Pannotia, then finally Pangaea.

There are earlier theoretized supercontinents; Vaalbara was formed from proto-continents and was a supercontinent by 3.1 billion years ago, then the supercontinent Kenorland was formed and then broke into the proto-continent cratons called Laurentia, Baltica, Australia, and Kalahari, then the supercontinent Columbia formed and broke up during a period of 1.8 to 1.5 billion years ago.

I think it's brilliant that one day there'll be another supercontinent which will then break up again, and so on and so on.

Dpes anyone know is someone given the next supercontinent a name yet?
