Of course in Newton and Halley's time, the word scientist had not yet been coined. The word was invented in 1833 by William Whewell, as a shorter description for the people previously known as natural philosophers. Whewell was a prolific coiner of new words in the scientific disciplines - several terms commonly used in science nowadays are his inventions.
