Nope. Never heard of this at all.

And they used "earthling" for "Charlie X"? The term was horribly dated in science fiction at that point; no one in the literature used it.
Watch the episode. McCoy uses it when he rejects the possibility of Charlie being an alien masquerading as a human. To the best of my recollection: "Not unless they're exactly like Earthlings. The development of his digits exactly matches that of Man on Earth."
