The original name proposed for element 107 was nielsbohrium (symbol Ns), but this was not agreed, and the temporary name unnilseptium (symbol Uns) was chosen, until a proper name could be agreed.
Here are a few: 104 unnilquadium 105 unnilpentium 106 unnilhexium 107 unnilseptium 108 unniloctium 109 unnilennium 110 ununnilium 120 unbinilium 130 untrinilium 140 unquadnilium 150 unpentnilium 160 unhexnilium 170 unseptnilium 180 unoctnilium 200 binilnilium 300 trinilnilium 400 quadnilnilium 500 pentnilnilium 900 enniinilium
Thus, 104 unnilquadium is Unq, 105 unnilpentium is Unp, 106 unnilhexium is Unh, 107 unnilseptium is Uns, 108 unniloctium is Uno, and 109 unnilennium is Une.
