Lemme just sneak my name in there...

Does everyone who holds a shard put their name into their world somewhere?  

 

Scadrial

Ati-Atium

Leras-Lerasium

 

Nalthis

Edgli (maybe)-Tears of Edgli

 

Sel

Aona-AonDor

Skai-Skaze

 

Braize

Rayse-Braize

 

Roshar

Tanavast-unknown

unknown-unknown

 

Can anybody think of any other examples of this? Also, why isn't harmonium called sazedium?  Is Sazed too humble for that, or have the people of the Southern Continent been using it before he ascended?

I think there's no such thing as harmonium because ruin and preservation still exist as two separate shards in Sazed's control.  It's Sazed who perceives them as "Harmony."  Also, since we know Preservation's investiture is partially consumed by the humans on the planet (just by the fact that they exist), it means that Ruin still has the upper hand unless Sazed does something to "burn off" the extra Ruin.

 

In fact, there's a WoB on this where Sanderson teases that point a little bit:

How is Harmony balanced when a part of Preservation's power is expended on human sentience? Isn't that what caused all the trouble to begin with?

Indeed. Hm... What could Sazed be doing with that extra power...

 

 
Some people have theorized that the Pits of Eltania, where it's said that the Koloss have discovered some "previously unknown metals" could be a place where Sazed has regrown a stock of Atium.
