ANSWER: Lecoq named the element “gallia” after his native land of France. It was later claimed that, in one of those multilingual puns so beloved of men of science in the early 19th century, he had also named gallium after himself, as his name, “Le coq,” is the French for “the rooster,” and the Latin for “rooster” is “gallus”; however, in an 1877 article Le coq denied this supposition. (The supposition was also noted in Building Blocks of the Universe, a book on the elements by Isaac Asimov.)
