Names that other countries have for this feature:
Bay 17 mi wide which indents for 6 mi the N side of Livingston Island between Cape Shirreff and Williams Point, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Blythe Bay (q.v.), originally applied to a small bay on the SE side of Desolation Island on Powell's chart of 1822 published by Laurie, was erroneously transferred to this bay in the l930s. This error has now been rectified and a new name approved for the feature here described. Hero Bay is named for the American sloop Hero, under Capt. Nathaniel B. Palmer, which was one of the vessels of the Pendleton sealing fleet from Stonington which visited the South Shetland Islands in 1820-21.
