One nunatak was first roughly mapped and named "Moltke Nunatak" by the German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE), 1911-12, under Wilhelm Filchner. He named it for General Helmuth von Moltke, Chief of the German General Staff and Sec. of State for Home Affairs. Surveys during the mid-1950s by British, Argentine and United States expeditions indicate a group of four or five nunataks exist in the area.
