Named after the daughter of Alcinous, king of the Phaeacians. She befriended the shipwrecked Odysseus {see planet  (1143)} and persuaded her father to be kind to the visitor. Some accounts say Nausicaa later married Telemachus, Odysseus’ son. (Z 172)

Named by the Berlin astronomers on the occasion of the September 1879 assembly of the Astronomische Gesellschaft. These astronomers also proposed well-known names from the Odyssey for planets  (195),  (197), and  (201) (Astronomischer Kalender für 1882, p. 106).
