What's in a name? Help Ionic choose a new naming scheme


#1

With Uranium Unicorn, we only have a few more letters to use before we run out.

We could keep the element-animal scheme going, but there’s some letters that might not be possible a second time around. We’d like to hear your ideas. What naming scheme should we use?

God - Item

Thors hammer
Isis’ harpoon


#4

How about in honor of the famous ionian atomist (though not founder of atomic theory) Democritus: [ionized molecule] - [greek hero, or king]

examples:

azide-ajax (of course)
beryllium-busiris
calcium-chrysippus
dichromate-diomedes

oxalate-odysseus

I think you should use the electron on the atoms to distinguish the IONIC versions so for example the Hydrogen has one electron so that would be your first version then the second the next element that has 2 electrons .

VER 2.0

Are all 26 letters of the alphabet necessary? Is skipping X Y Z possible for example? It’s tougher to find a ‘type’ with its members’ names starting with each and every letter…


#12

How about types of Building Materials such as Wood, Glass, Stone, Ceramic, etc? And keep the animals going alongside.
