Named in honor of Baron Alexander von Humboldt (1769–1859), renowned naturalist and explorer of South America, Mexico and Siberia. His name is also associated with the Humboldt stream in the Pacific Ocean. (H 8)

Named by F. Moigno.

The departure in the naming usage from the broad mythological category was probably allowed because of Alexandra, daughter of Priamus {see planet  (884)}, although the discoverer is clear in his intent (Comptes Rendus 47, p. 446).
