Name:
Named in 1982 by Pete J. Dunn and Bozidar Darko Sturman for its relationship to retzius-(Ce). The -(Nd) suffix denotes the dominance of neodymium in the composition relative to the earlier cerium-dominant mineral.

The root name is in honor of Anders Jahan Retzius [October 3, 1742 Kristianstad, Sweden - October 6, 1821 Stockholm, Sweden], Swedish naturalist and Professor of Botany, Chemistry, and Natural History at Lund University.
Isostructural with:
Nd analogue of Retzian-(Ce) and Retzian-(La).
