Why is Black Sea called Black Sea?

Theories suggest that before being called as the Black Sea, the body of water was called as ''inhospitable Sea,' mostly because of the presence of savage tribes on its shores. According to one argument, storms during the winter make the water in the Black sea appear black, leading the sailors to call it as Black Sea.
