Aluminidinium.

Hence the American preoccupation with grotesquely butchering proper nomenclatural rulez with regards to.

Well was looking for alumium or aluminium, but the second part of your answer lets you off.

I have to confess since Na is element 11 and Mg is element 12 i simply looked at element 13 and the answer was obvious.

Since we are on a Humphry Davy kick there are two non-element things I associate him with.

The first us the Davy Safety Lamp, for to make it safer for miners working in explosive atmospheres, which paradoxically lead to an increase in mining accidents.

What was the other? Still used commonly today.

No. You're thinking of the French Horn.

Hint, it isn't an object like a lamp or a horn.

Hint, he was primarily a chemist.

Hint, you'll laugh when you find out.
