Why is Chlorine Fluoride called "Chlorine Fluoride" rather than "Fluorine Chloride"? As I was taught in school that normally that when nonmetal combine with nonmetal then we write the compound with lower atomic number first.

Fluorine is clearly the electronegative atom here in ClF.
Thus the name would be Chlorine fluoride.
