N entrance point of Dalgliesh Bay, Pourquoi Pas Island, Loubet Coast, was charted by FAE, 1908-10, in January 1909, when the name Cap Lainez was applied to the S entrance point of the bay, after Manuel Lainez (1855-1906), Argentine Senator and Founder of the newspaper El Diario, who assisted FAE at Buenos Aires in October 1908 (Charcot, 1912, Pl.2; Bongrain, 1914, vue 38 following p.60).

The point was surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in November 1948, and photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57. Following further survey of the area by FIDS from "Horseshoe Island" in 1957, the misapplication of the name of Lainez to the present feature was recognized, but the name was considered to be too firmly established to be moved. Lainez Point (APC, 1960, p.5; BA chart 3571, 14.vii.1961). Stinker Spit, so called from a colony of "stinkers" or giant petrels (Macronectes giganteus) found on the point by a FIDS party from "Horseshoe Island", 24 November 1957 (Tickell and Scotland, 1961, p.260).
