Named after the daughter of the Ostrogoth king Theodoric the Great (474–526) and regent for his grandson Athalarich during his whole reign (526–534). Amalasuntha (also Amalaswintha) was killed 535 by her cousin Theodahat who succeeded as Ostrogoth king. The assassination gave rise to the intervention in Italy by the Byzantine emperor Justinian I. (483–565). (LDS)

The naming might be influenced by the two letters of the provisional designation 1907 AM. See also the remarks to planet  (579).
