Asteroid 6116, Still, was discovered on October 26, 1984 by Edward "Ted" Bowell at Flagstaff, Arizona. It has a period of 5 years, 60 days.

It was named for American composer William Grant Still (1895-1978), one of the leading African-American composers of all time.

The meaning of asteroid Still seems to be what its name might suggest, though: still, being still, stilled, stopped, stills (for making liquor).
