adding O

Do you add an O to the end of every anion name or are there some exceptions?

i think the anionic ligands end in -o. And if the anion ends in -ide, it becomes -ido, -ate becomes -ato, and -ite becomes -ito.

If thats true then why for his example of [Co(NH3)5Cl]CL.2H2O he said it was Penta Ammine Chloro Cobalt II Chloride DiHydrate. Why is the chloride not Chloro?

I think it is chloride and not chloro because it is not part of the coordination compound and is written outside the brackets.
