List of Names Made From Periodic Table Element Symbols

Names Made From Periodic Table Element Symbols
Here are some names written using periodic table element symbols.

Making names from periodic table element symbols is just like writing words using the periodic table. Write a name and then compare its letters with the list of element symbols. Some names work, while other do not. For example, my name (Anne) cannot be written using the periodic table because the letter “A” is not an accepted symbol, although N (nitrogen) and Ne (neon) are. The name “Eric” is ErIC (erbium, iodine, carbon).

Examples of Names That Cannot Be Written With Element Symbols

These are a few examples of names that don’t work. If your name contains the letter “J” or “Q”, then you can’t write it with element symbols. Those are the two letters that do not occur in periodic table element symbols. Some names work if you use old element symbols or ones from a different language.


Spell Your Name With Element Symbols

For making posters or cards, construct names using element tiles. Here are traditional square element cells and here are round element symbol tiles. Just select the element symbols you like, right-click and save them, and then print them.
