Names that other countries have for this feature:
A low point at the NW corner of Jonassen Island in Antarctic Sound. The name "Cap Chaucheprat," after M. Chaucheprat, Private Secretary to V. Adm. Claude de Rosamel (Rosamel Island, q.v.), was applied to a feature in this vicinity by Capt. Jules Dumont d'Urville in 1838. The present name revives the d'Urville naming, which probably was related to the heights of Jonassen Island.
