Name for ionic compounds → metal cation + nonmetal/polyatomic anion

Ionic compounds → charge of anion goes to subscript of counterion

2nd row:

Fe2+ + PO43-  → transition metal + polyatomic anion → iron (II) phosphate 

3rd row:

Al2(SO4)→ Al3+ + SO42- → main group metal + polyatomic anion → aluminum sulfate
