Named for one of the sea nymphs, called Oceanides, daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. Doris married her brother Nereus {see planet  (4660)} by whom she bore the sea nymphs called Nereids, about fifty in number. (H 7)

Named by E. de Beaumont.

The name was chosen by the French geologist from a list of suggestions by Babinet, Secretary of the Paris Academy of Sciences. Beaumont further suggested the appellation deux Jumelles (the Twins) for this planet and (49) Pales, both discovered by Goldschmidt on the same night — a unique occurrence at that time.
