Names that other countries have for this feature:
Island 0.25 mi long, lying off the N end of Booth Island, in the Wilhelm Archipelago. Charted by the FrAE, 1903-05, and named by Charcot for Alphonse de Rothschild. To avoid confusion with Rothschild Island near Alexander Island, the UK-APC in 1959 recommended that the name be changed to Splitwind Island. Owing to some physical peculiarity, the wind south of this island is often very different from that north of it.
