How The Elements Got Their Names

Have you ever wondered where all those funny names on the periodic table came from? What the heck does “praseodymium” actually mean, anyway?

I’ve got you covered in this week’s video. Here’s the history and etymology of all the names on the periodic table! From Actinium (Greek for “ray”) to Zirconium (Persian “zargun” or “gold-colored”) I’ve got ya covered. 

Oh, and I made it rhyme, because why not?

Enjoy!!

Only took year 13 and me an hour to make! #resonance
