2032 Ethel

This minor planet is named after Ethel Lilian Voynich (1864 – 1960), an Irish writer and musician. Her best-known novel was her first one, The Gadfly, a historical story about religion and revolution that became very popular in Russia.

The symbol for this minor planet refers to her as the writer of this novel; it is a fly, as the constellation Musca, with a writing stylus horizontally tangent to it below, with the point to the left.
