46610 Bésixdouze           Discovered 1993 Oct. 15 by K. Endate and K. Watanabe at Kitami.
The decimal number 46610 translates to the hexadecimal B612, the designation of the fictitious minor planet in de St. Exupéry's 1943 novel Le Petit Prince. B612 was allegedly spotted on a single night in 1909 and reported at a meeting in 1920. The name was suggested independently by F. Hémery and J. Grygar.
