2129 Cosicosi

This minor planet is named after an Italian phrase, così così, traslating to "so-so," as in neither good nor bad. Discoverer and namer P. Wild describes the name as "the Italian characterization of indifference." Maybe he was feeling particularly indifferent when deciding on a name.

The symbol for this minor planet is a pair of lower-case Latin letter C's, tangent one on top of the other, with the bottom one reversed. This symbolizes both the originating phrase, and the co-existing presence of good and bad.
