Named by New Zealand Antarctic Place-Names Committee (NZ-APC) in 1961 after Sir Ernest Shackleton. He accompanied Scott on the southern journey during the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE) (1901-04) and subsequently led three Antarctic expeditions. On the British Antarctic Expedition (BrAE) (1907-09), Shackleton discovered the area beyond Shackleton Inlet to the Beardmore Glacier, and was the first to find a practicable route to the South Pole. Lack of food stopped him 97 miles from his goal.
