I'm confused when to use -ate vs just stating the atom. E.g. Ferrate vs Iron.

The -ate suffix is added to the name for the transition metal when naming anionic ligands

if the overall charge of the coordination complex is not zero (i.e. a negative or positive number) then the end of the metal is changed to -ate. The only special names are iron which turns into ferrate and copper which changes to cupprate.
