Named possibly for a daughter of Metabus. When she was young, her father dedicated her to the service of Artemis {see planet  (105)}. She became a virgin warrior and queen of the Volscians. She assisted Turnus against Aeneas {see planet  (1172)}. Camilla fought with one breast bared to give freedom to her bow arm. She was a swift runner, comparable to Atalanta {see planet  (36)}. She was killed by the spear of Aruns. (LDS; Z 49)

Other sources — see the remarks to planet  (87) — give the alternative interpretation that the name refers to the French astronomer Camille Flammarion (see planet  (1021)). This seems unlikely, however, because Pogson frequently used mythological names for his discoveries.
