Named after the daughter of Acrisius, king of Argos, and Eurydike {see planet  (75)}. Danaë was confined by her father to a brazen tower which was entered by Zeus {see planet  (5731)} in the form of rain. By him she had Perseus. (H 9)

Named (AN 54, 93 (1860)) by R. Luther at the request of the discoverer.

The discoverer conceded the naming because of illness.
