14914 Moreux           Discovered 1993 Oct. 9 by E. W. Elst at La Silla.
Théophile Moreux (1867-1954), commonly known as "Abbé Moreux", was a French astronomer and meteorologist. He founded an observatory in Bourges, where he was professor of science and mathematics. He observed surface features on the Moon and Mars, and wrote several popular books on astronomy.
