There is an asteroid, in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, called Ida. I don't know why it was named Ida, but I believe it is one of the largest asteroids known. In pictures Ida looks like a huge potato :) This is funny to me, since potatoes are commonly grown in Idaho, a name which contains the name Ida. So now, whenever I hear the name Ida, I think of potatoes (and asteroids). I think it is a kind of cute name though.
