A mathematician and a chemist had a baby. They named their baby IRON59. What would the baby's name be if translated into terms used in the parents' professions?


Answer

Felix, because IRON in chemistry is FE and 59 in Roman numerals is LIX.

I know IRON was Fe, but now that 59 was LIX.

I imagine someone here whose real name is Felix will use that username, iron59, on some website.

Fe was easy, but what do roman numerals have to do with being a mathematician?

I went through a long list of terms that might be applied to 59 by a mathematician, but not Roman numeral. Seems like historian would be better profession than mathematician.
