1152 Pawona

This minor planet is named after two astronomers: Johann Palisa and Max Wolf, in honor of their collaboration. It should be noted that neither of these men discovered or named the body.

The symbol of this minor planet is a composition of the "JP" and "MW" monograms, with the former over the latter, because of the order of the syllables in the name.
