the symbol Fe is derived from iron's latin name "Ferrum" like other elements with symbols far from the element name like potassium's symbol is K meaning "Kalium" or tin's symbol is Sn for "Stannum". we studied that, i actually have a list of all elements with those kind of symbols. if you want the complete list, email me: cloicuaderno@yahoo.com
