Named for the International Comet Quarterly, which serves as an international archive of photometric data on comets, striving to maintain a useful bridge between amateur and professional astronomers the naming occurs with the journal's century issue. Qualytemocrina is a play on the journal's title, each letter of the title being used and with a combination of word-order and letter-order reversal. The discoverer of this object was one of the most prolific comet discoverers and astrometrists of recent decades. Name suggested by D. W. E. Green, who made the key identification for this minor planet.
