Descubierto por el FIDS, que le dio el nombre de glaciar Victory debido a que fue descubierto durante la semana siguiente a la rendición del Japón en la II Guerra Mundial, en agosto de 1945. El nombre glaciar Vivar corresponde al apellido de Carlos Vivar Tapia, taxidermista del Instituto Antártico Chileno, quien participó en la Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1970-1971.
