Maybe not the traditional spelling, but the one given by its isolator:
The earliest citation given in the Oxford English Dictionary for any word used as a name for this element is alumium, which British chemist and inventor Humphry Davy employed in 1808 for the metal he was trying to isolate electrolytically from the mineral alumina […] Davy settled on aluminum by the time he published his 1812 book Chemical Philosophy […] But the same year, an anonymous contributor to the Quarterly Review, a British political-literary journal, in a review of Davy’s book, objected to aluminum and proposed the name aluminium, “for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound.”
BTW: how do you wink and smile wryly at the same time ;-/ without pulling a muscle?
Just like how the iPod Mini and Nano killed sales of the iPod Classic! And the iPad Mini caused sales of the iPad to plummet! And the iPod Touch with Retina Display demolished the market for the iPhone 4! Or something…
