Innominate means "unnamed" or "nameless", and it's an adjective.  The usage Arnold mentions is in fact short for "innominate bone".  In mammals, the three bones which Arnold mentions begin development as separate bones and later fuse to form part of the pelvis. The folks who did the Oregon book probably ran the text through a spell checker - the ones I use routinely change Latin words like innominata to their English cognates - in this case innominate.
