Names that other countries have for this feature:
A snow-covered hill (900 m) with two lower summits, one to the N and one to the S, standing 4 mi SE of Cape Roquemaurel on Trinity Peninsula. This hill was roughly charted but left unnamed by the French expedition under Capt. Jules Dumont d'Urville in March 1838. In 1948, the UK-APC gave the name "Thanaron Hill" to the feature. Their action followed a 1946 search by the FIDS which failed to identify a coastal point in the vicinity to which d'Urville had given the name "Cap Thanaron." The latter feature (now Thanaron Point) was subsequently identified. In 1963, the UK-APC renamed the hill described after Thomas A. Hanson, FIDS surveyor at Hope Bay, 1957-59.
