Named in honor of Princeton University. Lyman Spitzer {see planet  (2160)}, Director of Princeton University Observatory stated: “Nassovia is presumably a Latinized version of Nassau. When the first building in the town of Princeto n was built for what was then the College of New Jersey, this building was named Nassau Hall “in memory of the glorious King William III, who was a branch of the illustrious House of Nassau”. The quotation marks enclose a recommendation of the Governor of New Jersey who was a member of the Board of Trustees. Nassau Hall has been the center of the university ever since it was built, and the name Nassau has become associated with Princeton University.” (H 57)

Princeton University is also honored by minor planets  (508) and  (6151), respectively.
