2127 Tanya           Discovered 1971 May 29 by L. I. Chernykh at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.
Named in memory of Tanya Savicheva, a 12-year-old schoolgirl who perished during the 1941-1944 blockade of Leningrad. In her diary she made a record as her parents and other relatives died, one by one. Her last note was "... all the Savichev's have died, Tanya is left alone."
