British variants of American noun spellings: spectre, camomile, draught,
gaol, demagogue (marginal, demagog is rare in the US too), saltpetre
(double points for both being components of gunpowder).

Towns in Clarke County, Indiana: Whiskey Run.

County seats in Oklahoma: Ada, Kingfisher.

Mountains in Alberta: Babel, Diadem, The Finger, Gong.

Finally, if we insist on using other element names, I propose the
narrower class of "elements with many allotropes", in which case
phosphorus is probably the next best candidate.

Ada and Saltpetre definitely fit with the steampunk art theme.
