88795 Morvan           Discovered 2001 Sept. 20 by J.-C. Merlin at Le Creusot.
The Morvan massif is the northern part of the Massif Central mountains in France. The name Morvan comes from a Celtic expression meaning "black mountain", due to the forests that cover it. The highest summit is the Haut Folin (902 m).
