I'd love to hear how anyone gets "E-uhm" from "um".   Horrible. 

Edit:  I never realized the limeys and criminals put an extra "i" in their spelling.   Pretty sneaky, guize.  we're watching you.

Aluminum was the original name given to the element by Humphry Davy but others called it aluminum and that became the accepted name in Europe. However, in the USA the preferred name was aluminum and when the American Chemical Society debated on the issue, in 1925, it decided to stick with aluminum.

Well that certainly clears everything up.
