Named in honor of John Michael Anthony Danby {1929– }, celestial mechanician and sometime oboeist in the London Symphony Orchestra. An inspiring teacher, at the Yale University Observatory during the Brouwer {see planet  (1746)} era and more recently at the North Carolina State University, he is the author of modern texts on celestial mechanics and differential equations. The name also honors his daughter, Dinah, who while a student at Harvard provided occasional volunteer assistance with address labels for the MPCs and IAU Circulars. (M 11443)

Name proposed by B. G. Marsden, who found the identifications involving this Hilda-type planet.
