Probablemente, el nombre se le dio por el capitán Alexander Fairweather, del ballenero Balaena, de Dundee, Escocia, que en 1892-1893 operaba en la costa NE de Tierra de O'Higgins, formando parte de una expedición ballenera junto con otros tres buques: Active, Diana y Polar Star. En algunas cartas chilenas figuró como cabo Alejandro. Morro negro de piedra, ubicado en la medianía de la costa S de la isla Joinville, constituyendo el extremo de una península montañosa que se eleva a 597 metros.
