isnt it called anime because its animated?

It's just an abbreviation of the word "animation". It doesn't have any other meaning and then since the word was adopted the word "anime" then became associated with Japanese animation.

Use Wiki.

i guess it was used as a subset of animation particularly from Japan... and they call it anime there which comes from the root Manga most of the time... ^^, cos the ppl there pronounced it animēshon, the shortened version to be called animē... but nowadays, we can call animations that looks "Japanese" to be called anime... one such title would be Avatar, The Last Airbender... I guess that's it... ^^,
