Named in honor of Carl Desmond Murray (1955), of Queen Mary and Westfield College, London, in recognition of his immense contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of the minor bodies of the solar system. In particular, he has investigated the effects of various resonances on a number of sub-systems within the solar system; for example, the Kirkwood {see planet (1578)} gaps and the interrelationships between ring structures and small satellites around the giant planets.
