Names that other countries have for this feature:
Long, narrow point projecting into the head of Flandres Bay 3 miles S of Briand Fjord, on the W coast of Graham Land. Charted by the FrAE (1903-05) under Charcot, who applied the name "Baie Pelletan" to the indentations N and S of the point here described. In 1960 the UK-APC transferred the name Pelletan to the point; the two indentations do not together form an identifiable feature and they can be easily described by reference to this point. Charles-Camille Pelletan (1846-1915) was a French politician and Minister of the Navy, 1902-05.
