Named for Ignatius Kegler (1680-1746), a German Jesuit, who worked for 29 years as Astronomer Royal in Beijing. The identity of a comet he observed in 1737 with P/Swift-Tuttle, briefly suggested by W. T. Lynn {see planet (4358)} and discussed in considerable detail by B. G. Marsden {see planet (1877)}, was proven by the comet's recovery in 1992. (M 22505) Name suggested by I. Hasegawa.
