Theres a mineral Cummingtonite  :D :D this mineral must have the silliest name of them all! Its official name is magnesium iron silicate hydroxide, and it has the formula (Mg,Fe)7Si8O22(OH)2. It got its name from the locality where it was first found, Cummington, Massachusetts, USA.

This sounds like the molecule that's created when you walk into doors...in fact it's a type of sugar.

Erectone
No, this isn't one of the ingredients in Viagra...but is actually one of a group of compounds extracted from the Japanese/Chinese herb Hypericum erectum, which is often used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat arthritis, rheumatism, and as an astringent.

Arsole - the arsenic equivalent of pyrrole, and although it is rarely found in its pure form, it is occasionally seen as a sidegroup in the form of organic arsolyls. There is even a scientific paper titled "Studies on the Chemistry of the Arsoles"

Bastardane - ethano-bridged noradamantane.

Unununium - element 111

Dickite - a (kaolin) clay-like mineral which exhibits mica-like layers with silicate sheets of 6-membered rings bonded to aluminium oxide/hydroxide layers.

Fukalite - very rare form of calcium silico-carbonate from Fuka in Japan.

Fucitol - an alcohol, also known as L-fuc-ol or 1-deoxy-D-galactitol.

Crapinon - also known as Sanzen.

Spamol -  also known as aminopromazine, lispamol or lorusil.

That's enough for now.  ;D
