Names that other countries have for this feature:
Anchorage at the SE side of Desolation Island, lying N of Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands. The feature was known to American and British sealers as Blythe Bay as early as 1821. In the 1930's, however, the name was applied to a large bay between Williams Point and Cape Shirreff (now Hero Bay). This error has now been rectified and the name Blythe Bay is approved as originally used. The name is probably after Blythe (now Blyth), England, home of William Smith who reported the discovery of the South Shetland Islands in 1819.
