Names that other countries have for this feature:
A snow-covered peninsula 6 mi long, forming the SE side of Lapeyrere Bay on the NE coast of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. The NE coast of Anvers Island was roughly surveyed by the FrAE under Charcot in 1905 and the name "Pointe Gourdon," for Vice-Admiral Gourdon of the French Navy, was given to a point between Lapeyrere and Fournier Bays. The UK-APC in 1956 altered the name to Gourdon Peninsula and applied it to the peninsula described, which almost certainly is the feature Charcot had in mind when he gave the original name.
