Names that other countries have for this feature:
An isolated ice-covered island 1 mi long, with several rocky islets and pinnacles off its E side, located off the W side of Antarctic Peninsula, c. 40 mi SW of Cape Monaco, Anvers Island. Probably discovered by C.J. Evensen, captain of the Peninsula in 1893, because an unnamed island of similar extent and location first appeared on the charts at that time. The island was charted by the FrAE, 1903-05, under Dr. J.B. Charcot, who named it for the French poet and novelist Victor Hugo, grandfather of Charcot's first wife, nee Jeanne Hugo.
