Expert Answer:

“Periodic” means that every so often something repeats. The arrangement of the elements in the table shows that properties are repeated.

Because of the periodicity in the physical and chemical properties of elements in a particular group was repeated for example halogens, inert gases, etc.

Hence it named the “Periodic table”.
