Seaborgium

What the name means: Seaborgium was named after the American nuclear scientist and Nobel Laureate, Glenn Theodore Seaborg.

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) had given the new element the name Unnilhexium, with the symbol Unh. In 1997 the IUPAC accepted the name seaborgium (even though this name had been rejected in 1994 because the committee voted against naming an element after a living person).
