Named by the Italian Committee for Antarctic Geographical Names after Commander Giovanni Ajmone Cat (1934-2007), Commander, Italian merchant navy. He led expeditions to Antarctica (1969-71 and 1973-74) aboard his 34 ton felucca, San Guiseppe II, which he had designed himself and had built near Naples, Italy.
