Is AuBr3 named Gold tribromide or Gold (III) bromide? If both are fine, which one is more likely to be used?

    Gold(III)bromide, because it indicates the oxidation state of Gold. (Au - Aurum).

    most likely --- Gold (III) bromide

    Most likely would be AuBr3.

    I see no reason to choose one or the other of the remaining alternatives which are equally good.

    For a longer list of possible names, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold(III)_bromide .

    (If you were submitting a paper to a scientific journal for publication, the editor would tell you which kind of naming convention to use.)
