Named in honor of William Cranch Bond (1789–1859) and his son George Phillips Bond (1825–1865) who both were directors of the Harvard College Observatory in Cambridge, Massachusetts. W. C. Bond was codiscoverer of comet 1850 II and was one of the first astronomers who used the photographic technique in astronomy. G. P. Bond discovered in 1848 the Saturn satellite Hyperion and (1850) Saturn’s faint crepe ring. (H 77)

Both astronomers are also honored by lunar craters, G. P. Bond also by a crater on Mars. See also the remarks to planet  (1052).
