Named in honor of Andrew Claude de la Cherois Crommelin (1865–1939), who worked and wrote extensively on the orbits of comets and minor planets. Together with P. H. Cowell {see minor planet  (1898)}, Crommelin computed the orbit of Jupiter VIII and identified appearances of Halley’s comet back to the year –239. (M 3827)

Name suggested by B. G. Marsden.

Crommelin is also honored by craters on Mars and the Moon.
