Named in honor of the famous German astronomer Johannes Kepler (1571–1630) on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of his death. After incredible labor, Kepler discovered the elliptical orbits of the planets, the law of equal areas, and the relation between the period and the size of an orbit. (AN 240, 135 (1930))

Kepler is also honored by craters on the Moon and Mars and by a mountain on Phobos.
