8336 Safarík           Discovered 1984 Sept. 27 by A. Mrkos at Klet.
Named in memory of Vojtech Safarík (1829-1902), known for his work in inorganic chemistry, Czech chemical nomenclature and textbooks, as well as for his observations of variable stars. He obtained about 20~000 observations of variable stars. This minor planet also honors the memory of his wife and co-worker Paulína Safaríková (1836-1920), who was interested in the history and popularization of astronomy. Name suggested by J. Ticha and M. Tichy.
