Names that other countries have for this feature:
The southernmost of the Aitcho Islands, lying in English Strait in the South Shetland Islands. The name Cecilias Straits was applied to English Strait by Captain Davis of the American sealer Huron of New Haven, CT, which visited the South Shetland Islands in 1820-22, after the shallop Cecilia tender to the Huron. Since English Strait is firmly established, the UK-APC in 1961 applied the name Cecilia to this conspicuous feature in order to preserve the American name in the area.
