It's based off of the Latin word ferrum meaning iron.

It is named ferrate because it is an anion within a coordination compound.

When the overall compound is negative, you add an -ate suffix to the central transition metal when naming it.
example [Cr(NH3)2] is just diamminecromium but [Co(NH3)2]^-1 is diamminecromate

When naming a coordination compound, the ligand names are written first in alphabetical order (before the TM ion). They are written using prefixes to indicate the number of ligands, so the prefix tri- would be chosen over bi- if the complex has three ligands.
