Discovered and given the descriptive name "Grosses Schwarz-Horn" (great black peak) by the German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE) under Ritscher, 1938-39. The peak was remapped by the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition, 1956-60, who used the form Store Svarthorn. The Norwegian spelling has been recommended by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) to agree with associated features in the area having this name.
