Named in memory of Wilhelm Ernst Tempel (1821–1889), discoverer of sixteen comets, five minor planets and several diffuse nebulae. Born in the German district of Upper Lusatia, Tempel was an uncommonly successful and enthusiastic observer. His minor planets were discovered while he was in Marseilles. (M 13483)

Name suggested by M. Gressmann on the 100th anniversary of Tempel’s death in Florence.

Tempel is also honored by a lunar crater.
