- Karl Friedrich Naumann (May 30, 1797 - November 26, 1873) was a German mineralogist and geologist. In 1826 he succeeded Mohs as professor of crystallography, in 1835 he became professor also of geognosy at Freiberg; and in 1842 he was appointed professor of mineralogy and geognosy in the university of Leipzig. Naumann was a man of encyclopaedic knowledge, lucid and fluent as a teacher. Early in life (1821-1822) he travelled in Norway, and his observations on that country, and his subsequent publications on crystallography, mineralogy and geology established his reputation.
- According to Whitaker (p. 224), this name was introduced by Schmidt.
