this amused me

** HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE: Aluminum was originally named "alumium" by Sir Humphry Davy, who later changed it to "aluminum" (perhaps in an attempt to make it more Latinized since alumen is Latin for alum, the aluminum compound that the name is derived from). The British (and allied English speakers) shortly thereafter changed the name once more, this time to "aluminium" so that it would again match the pattern of most other elements (helium, sodium, etc.), while the North Americans eventually decided to keep the second, slightly more traditional name. I predict that North Americans will adopt the more regular "-ium" spelling by the year 2050, prompting the British to start calling it "alumininium". At that point debate can begin on changing "platinum" to "platinium"

Alumeeyumyum was the other option but alas Humphie never brought it up again out of embarassment. :P
I'd blame that choice on watching too much FoodTV but then it didn't exist at that time, so, that's kind of hard to do. Give me a chance to think on it though. *ponders* If I can reverse the polarity of the dilithium crystals and then add a few hairs from the beard of Molto Mario, just maybe... ;o)
