In the mythology of India, Ganesa is the son of Siva and Parvati {see planets  (1170) and  (2847), respectively}, who represents the call to spiritual power. Soon after birth he glanced at the god Sani, who symbolizes obstacles, and the baby’s head was reduced to ashes. His head was then replaced with the head of Indra’s elephant, Airavata. He procures wealth and encourages the success of all enterprises, and is much revered by the merchant class. (M 21606)

Named by the Minor Planet Names Committee following a suggestion by F. Pilcher.
