Names that other countries have for this feature:
Island 1.5 mi long lying at the NE end of Nansen Island in Wilhelmina Bay, off the W coast of Graham Land. This island and Nansen Island were first charted as one feature and named "Ile Nansen" by the BelgAE under Gerlache in 1898. The islands became well known to whalers operating in the area in the early 1900s and the names North and South Nansen Islands were used to distinguish them. Since Nansen Island has now become established for the larger feature, a new name has been given to the smaller by the UK-APC, commemorating the enterprise of the whalers who made the anchorage at the S side of the island (Foyn Harbor) a major center of summer industry during the period 1916-30.
