Named for the wife of Othello in William Shakespeare’s {see planet  (2985)} tragedy (written 1604). (H 68)

The naming might be influenced by the two letters of the provisional designation 1908 DM. See also the remarks to planet  (579). The name Desdemona has also been given to the satellite Uranus X, discovered 1986 by the Voyager 2 spacecraft.

Discovered on 23-7-1908 in Heidelberg by Kopff, A.
