This name originates from United Kingdom. It is part of the Gazetteer of the British Antarctic Territory and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
Formerly near SW end of Wordie Bay, Fallières Coast, was surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in November 1958; called Napier Ice Rise (APC, 1962), when it appeared as an ice rise within the Wordie Ice Shelf and named in association with the names of pioneers of navigation grouped in this area, named after John Napier (1550-1617), Scottish mathematician who invented logarithms and published his first tables in 1614 (APC, 1962, p.22; DOS 610 sheet W 69 66, 1963). Landsat TM satellite imagery of February 1989 (218 109) showed that the ice shelf had retreated and left an island at this location, see Napier Island (q.v.).
