Named in honor of the German astronomer Johannes Larink (1893–1988), who worked at the Hamburg Observatory in Bergedorf as senior observer from 1922 until 1958. He determined the periods of Cepheids in M3, but his main field was classical astronomy. He carried out astrometric programs using the Bergedorf meridian circle, for instance making measurements of reference stars for the AGK2 and AGK3 and a catalogue of faint stars. (M 3827)
