Named for the daughter of Agenor {see planet  (1873)}, king of Phoenicia, and sister of Cadmus {see planet  (7092)}. She was carried off across the water to Crete on the back of a bull, which form had been assumed by Jupiter who was enamored of her. Europa became the mother of Minos, Sarpedon {see planets  (6239) and  (2223), respectively} and Rhadamanthus. (H8)

Named by Marshal Vaillant.

The name Europa has also been given to the second satellite of Jupiter, discovered 1610 by Galilei.
