Well, think of it this way. A ruby and a sapphire in real life are chemically similar to each other, but are not similar to real life garnets. Combining a real life ruby and sapphire will not get you a garnet.

Also remember that mixed-gem fusions were forbidden on Homeworld, so there is no logically reason for them to have names already pre-programmed into their minds, unlike singular Gems.
