Is it slightly ironic that Americium is one of the heaviest elements?

Contrary to popular belief, it isn't pronounced anything like America, but rather A-mher-ee-see-um

While what you say is true, I wonder if the correct pronunciation of it might actually be the most common way of saying it.

I knew the correct pronunciation because on every rare occasion that the element has been brought up (science class/ tv shows) it's also been said correctly because a teacher or someone said it. I'd bet that anyone who knows the word/element enough to use it probably knows how to say it.

Although I suppose it's also true people could vaguely know of it from a passing glance at the periodic table. Sorry, I'm not trying to be an argumentative dick so much as i'm just thinking out loud.

Dude, that's radioactive. Then again, Captain America could maybe grow an extra arm or something and be even more badass.
