Named, as companion to (1580) Betulia, to honor the maiden name of Mrs. Herrick, and because of its phonetic, masculine, and legendary appropriateness to the group of close minor planets. (M 2504)

Naming delegated to Samuel Herrick and his associates, especially Kenneth C. Ford, whose predictions led to its recovery in 1956 and 1964.
