|Name:||Named in 1990 by Alexander Petrovich Khomyakov, Aleksander Yur'evich Bakhchisaraitsev, and A. V. Martynova from Greek τυχή, "tyche", luck or chance, because the first and only one of the last ten crystals of a stock of about 5000 crystals of northupite being examined by Penfield and Jamieson were tychite, plus the prefix "MANGANO-" in allusion to the dominance of manganese in the composition.|
