This is the Greek name for Vesta {see planet  (4)}, here considered as one of the Hesperides, daughters of Hesperis and Atlas, guardians of the golden apples given to Juno {see planet  (3)} by Jupiter on their wedding day. The other Hesperides are Aegle and Arethusa {see planets  (96) and  (95)}. (H 7)

Named by Admiral W. H. Smyth, “who oblingly complied with my request to stand God-father to this first offspring of his former telescope” (AN 47, 213 (1857)).
