Reference work entry

Named after an unfinished opera by Ernest Guirand which was completed by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns (1835–1921) {see planet  (5210)}. (H 69)

The naming might be influenced by the two letters of the provisional designation 1909 FS. See also the remarks to planet  (579).
