Named for the daughter of Tantalus {see planet  (2102)} and sister of Pelops, the king of Phrygia. She presumed to be greater than Latona {see planet  (639)}. Apollo {see planet  (1862)} punished her by killing her seven sons and seven daughters and changing her into a rock. (H 11)

The name was chosen by a majority of astronomers who met in Dresden on August 20/21, 1861.
