614 Pia is a minor planet orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter in the asteroid belt. August Kopff discovered 614 Pia on October 11, 1906 at Heidelberg, Germany.

The Name

Its name may have been inspired by the Pia Observatory at Trieste, Italy, which German astronomer Johann Nepomuk Krieger (1865–1902) named for his wife, Pia. Pia is Italian for "pious."
