flowing W into Weyerhaeuser Glacier, N central Palmer Land, was surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in January 1960; because the glacier provided a route out of the mountains to the NE, named after Hermes, son of Zeus, messenger of the gods and god of roads in Greek mythology (APC, 1962, p.16; DOS 610 sheet W 68 64, 1963; USGS sketch map Palmer Land (North Part), 1979). This name initiated the idea of naming other features in the area after Greek gods.
