I believe it depends if the metal is alone, has a charge, or is part of a larger compound. Metals with no charge are written just as their name appears on the periodic table. Metals with a charge are the same however the charge is written in parentheses. Metals part of compounds must have charges and are often bound with an ion. FeCl2 for example is called Iron (II) chloride. The name of the ion changes depending on what it is.
