After the discovery, it received the provisional designation S/2001 (58534) 1. Once confirmed it was officially named (58534) Logos I Zoe. It orbits Logos with a semi-major axis of 8010 ± 80 km in 312 ± 3 d with an eccentricity of 0.45 ± 0.03. Its estimated diameter is 66 km, and mass (0.15 ± 0.02)×1018 kg. The provisional designation of comets and asteroids are similar to each other: they both follow a pattern set in 1925 by the Minor Planet Center of the IAU.
