What is an anionic ligand and what does it have to do with naming?

Anionic ligands are ligands that dissociate from the metal as an anion.

I'm not exactly sure how anionic ligands affect naming, but I do know that if the complex in a coordination compound is an anion, you use the latin name of the central atom in naming the compound (for example: "ferrate" instead of "iron").
