Named probably for a Roman noble girl. With nine other girls she was an hostage given to Porsenna who had besieged Rome. But during the night she escaped and swimming crossed the Tiber river. (A. Paluzie-Borrell)

The naming might be influenced by the two letters of the provisional designation 1908 CL. See also the remarks to planet  (579).
