Technically speaking, both "Aluminium" and "Aluminum" are correct. It's just that the latter is an officially accepted alternative commonly used in but ~2 countries, whereas the rest of the world sticks to the original spelling...

#6 Aloomanum is easier for them to pronounce. You wouldn't take the piss out of a mentally disabled child, so just be patient with the Muricans.

#7 & #9 Sir Humphry Davy discovered the existence of the shiny metal and gave it a name - Aluminum.
The Brits decided years later that it needed to “rhyme” with the other elements on the periodic table and renamed it Aluminium. So who is right? I tend to lean towards the original name by the discoverer, not those who are more interested in rhyming.
BTW.. The Canadians agree.....
It's a North American thing,,,you wouldn't understand. :D
