(743) Eugenisis

Discovered 1913 Feb. 25 by F. Kaiser at Heidelberg.

This name is composed from the two Greek words “eu” (good, well) and “genesis” (creation). Obviously, there is a close connection with the birth of the daughter of the discoverer (see also the citation for planet (746)). (M. Kretlow; I. van Houten-Groeneveld)

The naming information was given by Dr. M.-L. Kaiser, daughter of the discoverer.
