9007 James Bond

This minor planet is named after the secret spy protagonist from Ian Fleming's series of novels. You may have seen some of his movies, too. The number of this minor planet is sort of a pun: the character's codename in the MI6 is "007."

The symbol of this minor planet is a martini, in reference to one of Bond's most famous utterances: "shaken, not stirred." At least, that's how the phrase is commonly remembered.
