The name of $Ba_3N_2$ is : "Barium nitride"

Work Step by Step

1. Identify the positive ion, and name it. $Ba^{2+}$ is the positive ion. So, the first name of the compound will be: "Barium"; 2. Identify the negative ion, and name it. $N^{3-}$ is the negative ion. This is a monoatomic anion, so it will receive the element's stem name: "nitr", plus the suffix "ide": "nitride" 3. Putting those two names together: Barium nitride.
