8061 Gaudium

This minor planet is named after the Latin word gaudi, meaning joy, delight, gladness, and pleasure. It was intended to be the opposite of the minor planet 5708 Melancholia.

Accordingly, the symbol of this minor planet is the inverted symbol of Melancholia: an irregular pentagon shape pointing upward, with a horizontal line crossing enar the point, above a cross.
