IUPAC have made a provisional recommendation about the name for element 111. To quote: "A joint IUPAC-IUPAP Working Party (JWP) has confirmed the discovery of element number 111 and this by the collaboration of Hofmann et al. from the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung mbH (GSI) in Darmstadt, Germany. In accord with IUPAC procedures, the discoverers have proposed a name and symbol for the element. The Inorganic Chemistry Division Committee now recommends this proposal for acceptance. The proposed name is roentgenium with symbol Rg.

This proposal lies within the long established tradition of naming elements to honour famous scientists. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered X-rays in 1895."
