Periodic Table with Names

Atom

"The Atom"

Periodic Table with Names with names based on the *IOUPAC 1985 standard

For convenience due the limitations of screen width the interactive Periodic Table chart does not include the Lanthanides (period six) or Actinides (period seven) which reside between group 2 and group 3 of the
periodic table shown above. They are, however, listed separately in the table below.

Periodic Table with Names - Names of elements with their symbols, atomic numbers and states
Due to limitations of screen width it is not possible to create a practical table including all of the Periodic Table names. We have therefore detailed an alphabetical list of the Period Table names of elements together with their symbols, atomic numbers and whether they are classified as a liquid, solid or gas (States of Matter). We have then gone on to provide facts and information on the meanings and origins of the names of the elements and their symbols. This additional info will help students to understand the Periodic Table names and memorize them.

Periodic Table with Names - Origins of the Names of Elements on the Periodic Table
The origins of the Periodic Table names of the elements are derived from various sources including:

  • The ancient names of elements or substances taken for Greek and Latin
  • The names of the scientists of first discovered the element
  • The names of famous scientists, such as Curie and Einstein, in whose honor the element was named
  • The names of places where the element was first discovered such as Californium and Germanium
  • The names of planets, such as Uranium and Plutonium
  • Names taken from the Latin words for numbers e.g. Ununseptium which is a temporary name taken from Latin meaning one-one-seven

Periodic Table with Names - Names of Element Symbols
Some of the Periodic Table names of the symbols of elements are derived from their names in the Greek, Latin or German languages. Great if you are multi-lingual but difficult if you are not! Knowing the origins of the names the Element Symbols make them easier to learn and understand. The elements with Greek of Latin names are the oldest elements known and the element symbols were allocated when these classic languages were those used by ancient scholars. There are only 10 elements whose element symbol names are not immediately apparent. Learn these origins of names and symbols and the Periodic table becomes easier! The meanings and origins of the names of the more obscure element symbols are as follows:

  • Sb: Antimony : Sb - From the Greek words 'anti' and 'monos' meaning "opposed to solitude".

  • Cu: Copper : Cu - From the Latin word 'cyprium', after the island of Cyprus.

  • Au: Gold : Au - From the Latin word 'aurum' meaning gold.

  • Fe: Iron : Fe - From the Latin word 'ferrum' meaning iron.

  • Pb: Lead : Pb - From the Latin word 'plumbum' meaning lead.

  • Hg : Mercury: Hg - From the Greek word 'hydrargyros' meaning 'water' and 'silver'.

  • K: Potassium : K - From the Medieval Latin word 'kalium' meaning potash (pot ashes).

  • Ag: Silver: Ag - From the Latin word 'argentum' meaning silver

  • Sn: Tin : Sn - From the Latin word 'stannum' meaning tin

  • W: Tungsten:W - From the German word 'Wolfram'. Ancient alchemists called the metal "spuma lupi," the Latin words for  'wolf foam' which was translated to the word "wolframite" with reference to the unpleasant substance formed during the smelting of tin ores containing tungsten
