There are two other minor planets named after Wolf: 1217 Maximiliana, and 1152 Pawona along with Johann Palisa. The referent of this minor planet is not to be confused with Marek Wolf, an unrelated astronomer and minor planet discoverer.

The symbol of this minor planet is a monogram consisting of the capital Latin letters "MW" over an asteroidal star in a circle.
