Names that other countries have for this feature:
Island 2 mi long, which lies immediately S of Eta Island in the Melchior Islands, Palmer Archipelago. This island, the largest feature in the SE part of the Melchior Islands, is part of what was called "Ile Melchior" by the FrAE under Charcot, 1903-05, but the name Melchior now applies for the whole island group. Omega Island was roughly surveyed by DI personnel in 1927. The name Omega, derived from the last letter of the Greek alphabet, appears to have been first used on a 1946 Argentine government chart following surveys of the Melchior Islands by Argentine expeditions in 1942 and 1943.
