611 Valeria

This minor planet has a feminine name of Latin origin, with a meaning denoting strength. The referent of this name, if any, is unknown.

It is suspected that the name of this minor planet was inspired by the letters in its provisional designation, 1906 VL, in a pattern similar to its nearby neighbors, [[[minor-planets:610 |611 Valeska]] and 612 Veronika.

The symbol for this minor planet is a large Latin letter V with a small Latin letter L inside it.
