Lemmium, and the Naming of Things

I really did not think I would be writing about Lemmy Kilmister, even if Doctor Anna is as metal as iridium. But alas, the late heavy metal icon has found his way to science news in a very strange way. Lemmy was the growly-voiced front man for Motörhead, and his appeal to his fans seems to go far beyond his music; to some, he was heavy metal in the flesh. But, unfortunatlely, the newly discovered heavy metal did not get to carry the name Lemmium.
