NE of Nansen Island, Danco Coast, was charted by BeAE, 24 January 1898, together with Nansen Island (q.v.) as one island, which was called Île Nansen (Lecointe, 1900a, p.30); further charted as a separate island by BAE, 1920-22, and called North Nansen (Lester's amendments to Johannessen, chart, [1919-20]) or North Nansen Island (Lester, 1920-22a, Vol. 6, p.121; Bagshawe, 1939, p.175). Nansen Island, referring collectively to this island and Nansen Island (Lester and others, chart, [1921-22]). The anchorage in Foyn Bay, between the two islands, had by this time been known to the whalers for some years. Isla Nansen Norte (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.246; Pierrou, 1970, p.539). Isla Lientur, so called by CAE, 1949-50, after the expedition patrol ship Lientur (Chile. DNH chart 1501, 1962; IHA, 1974, p.184). Following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, the island was renamed Enterprise Island in reference to the enterprise of the whalers who made Foyn Harbour a major centre of summer industry during the period 1916-30 (APC, 1960, p.4; BA chart 3566, 25.viii.1961).
