(711) Marmulla

Reference work entry

Discovered 1911 Mar. 1 by J. Palisa at Vienna.

Named possibly after the German word “Marmel” or “Murmel” (“Marmul” in the medieval form) which (712) Boliviana means a marble — surely a nice allusion to a minor planet. (P. Wild)

The name was spelled ‘Marmula’ in the naming announcement (AN 191, 216 (1912)).
