Periodic table enjoys elemental engorgement

Dr. G. Freeman

113 will be something to do with RIKEN or Japan (Japonium, Rikenium)

115, was the Dubna lot, so Moscovium (we already have Dubnium)

117, Oak Ridge, so Weinburgium after it's first boss maybe ? Well, Weinburgine seeing as it's a halogen- oe either named after the lab (Oakine) or after the state (Tennessine, or Tennessium),

118, Dubna/ Lawerence Livermore team up - so that'll be something safe and non-political... but has to end in -on as its a Noble Gas. Higgson, maybe ?
