      This is a fun question! Sheridan is correct that the term is relative, so if there was life on other planets we would be alien! However, whilst we are Terrestial life/Life that has evolved on Earth, the Earth was supplied with some essential components (like Ice water) by meteorites that bombarded into our surface and there are even some (potentially not well supported) suggestions that life could have started elsewhere and been transported to Earth via meteorite.

      Good question. I guess we are aliens for others in the universe.
