If discoveries were named by the discoverers after themselves, Sir Humphry Davy would have had difficulties, being that he isolated a number of elements using a voltaic pile (battery)

After Humphrium and Davium, there are still more elements he isolated than he had family names to work with.

Booty has various nefarious meanings, but in this case it is best paired with boy.

If I had discovered some elements, I would have to self-title them with a name like Superbium.
