Names that other countries have for this feature:
Prominent snow-covered headland which forms the N extremity of Antarctic Peninsula. The name Siffrey was given to a cape in this vicinity by the French expedition under Capt. Jules Dumont d'Urville, 1837-40, and was previously approved for the feature here described. D'Urville's "Cap Siffrey" has since been identified by the UK-APC as a point 2 mi to the ESE, now called Siffrey Point. The name Prime Head, given by the UK-APC in 1963, alludes to the position of the headland as the first or northernmost feature of Antarctic Peninsula.
