In January of 2014, (174567) 2003 MW12 was named (174567) Varda.

In J.R.R. Tolkien's mythology, Varda is the queen of the stars, the star-kindler. She is the deity who, prior to the birth of the first humans, created the stars and constellations. She also set the vessels of the Sun and Moon upon their appointed courses above the girdle of the Earth. Ilmarë is Varda's handmaid.

Varuna in the 1st House opposite 1999 TD10 in the 7th House is in the Crossing Axis of the Age Progressions (House Horoscope / Moon Node Horoscope).

"I don't want to live in a society that does these sort of things … I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live under." (Edward Snowden; The Guardian, 9 June 2013)
