Named in memory of József Miska Petzval (1807–1891), mathematician, professor and inventor at the University of Vienna. He proposed the Petzval lens, and many minor planets were discovered by means of this portrait design at the end of the nineteenth century. (M 25976)

Name proposed by the discoverer, following a suggestion by astronomers of the Astronomical Institute at Tatranská Lomnica.

Petzval is also honored by a lunar crater.
