Named after the Greek god of love (in Latin called Cupido or Amor), son of Mercury and Venus. He protected the beautiful Psyche {see planet  (16)} from the vengeance of his mother and when he later married her she became immortal. See also the citation for planet  (763). (H 47)

This is the first minor planet with a male name. Named by G. Witt (AN 148, 175 (1899)).
