Asterioid 375 Ursula, was discovered on September 18, 1893 by Auguste Charlois at Nice, France. It has a period of 5 years, 190 days and is 216 kilometers in diameter.

It is not known for whom or what this asteroid was named, but Ursula is a female name meaning "she-bear" in Latin.

Asteroid Ursula's meaning seems to be what this might suggest: to defend fiercely, having to do with bears (especially female bears).
