It was initially provisionally designated as 1951 SY and later named "(10000) Myriostos" (Greek for "ten thousandth") to honor all astronomers who helped discover ten thousand such bodies. This occurred after some debate as to whether Pluto should have been reclassified as a minor planet and given the number 10000, with strong resistance coming from the American Astronomical Society's Division for Planetary Sciences.
