hexacyanoferrate(II) ion

hexa-cyano because cyano is the name of the ligand CN-
ferrate because this is the name of Fe with -ate added to the end to indicate that the entire ion is negative

In this example, to determine oxidation number, it is important to know that -CH has a -1 charge. Since the overall charge is 4-, Fe must have a +2 charge, giving the name hexacyanoferrate (II) ion.
