Logan Grutchfield, age 14

Florida, United States

Proposed name: Aether

Justification for the name: "I think we should name the asteroid Aether because Aether is the Greek god of the sky. Since Aether is the god of everything above our atmosphere, and since 1999 RQ36 is above said atmosphere we should name it Aether."
