Named in honor of Shigemasa Suzuki (1920– ), an instrumentalist whose career began at the Tokyo Astronomical Observatory in Mitaka {see planet  (1088)}, where he assisted in the development of a multiphase radio interferometer. In 1960 he took up a fellowship offered by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organization and joined its division of radiophysics. In 1966 he became the first person of Japanese birth naturalized as an Australian citizen. (M 30100)

Name proposed by the second discoverer, following a suggestion by K. Tomita, who was Suzuki’s neighbor in Mitaka.
