Expert Answer:

Earlier the elements were named according to their some unique properties or on the name of the discoverer or any place, etc. Lateron IUPAC gave a rule for their nomenclature. But it is not feasible to rename the elements we already are very much aware of, so names of the already known elements are unchanged.
