1217 Maximiliana

This minor planet is named after German astronomer Max Wolf, an extremely prolific asteroid discoverer. Another minor planet, 827 Wolfiana, is named after him, and also the minor planet 1152 Pawona is named after him and astronomer Johann Palisa.

The symbol of this minor planet is an "MW" monogram as in the symbol for Wolfiana, but over an open circle instead of a circle with an asteroidal star.
