Named in honor of Andrew Lowe, a Canadian professional geophysicist and amateur astronomer in Calgary who has particular interests in computational astronomy involving minor planets and occultations. In recent years, he has opened up a new area of identification research by establishing several cases of linkages of orbits where the observations of the minor planets involved were made on only two nights at individual oppositions.
