Four new elements (113, 115, 117 and 118) have been confirmed by IUPAC, completing the seventh row of the periodic table. What do you think should they be named? Srs bzns.
For sure 113 should be named after Japan like rikenium or nipponium. I don't know about the other ones.
Friendly reminder that element 115 will be the key to making space travel feasible. It should be named after the aliums who brought it to us first.

yeah but the rules are stupid and say you can only name an element after a mythological concept or character (including an astronomical object); a mineral, or similar substance; a place or geographical region; a property of the element; or a scientist.
so since lemmy is also the name of an astronomical object it'll be a technicality.
There's a petition to name one of the new heavy metals 'Lemmium' after Motorhead lead Lemmy's death.
