Yeah. About that.
The "aluminium" version actually preceded "aluminum" by several years, 
so if anything the U.S. version is actually the weird one. There are 
very few other elements that veer from the standard "ium" suffix into 
just "um": molybdenum, lanthanum,, tantalum, platinum, and all of those 
are transition metals.
