Names that other countries have for this feature:
An 1810 m summit 1 mi. N of the base of Ketchum Ridge in the S part of Endeavour Massif, Kirkwood Range, Victoria Land. The name Mount Endeavour was given to the S block of the Kirkwood Range by the N.Z. Northern Survey Party of CTAE in Oct. 1957, but in subsequent N.Z. and U.S. maps the name is identified as the 1810 m summit described above. Following additional mapping by USGS in 1999 and consultation between US-ACAN and NZGB, the name Endeavour Massif (q.v.) was approved for the S block of the Kirkwood Range. For the sake of historical continuity the name Mount Endeavour has been retained for the summit near Ketchum Ridge. The summit and the massif are named after HMNZS Endeavour (formerly John Biscoe), supply ship to the 1957 N.Z. Northern Survey Party. A 1962 decision refined.
