The name Clifford Ashley Mountains was used by Robert Cushman Murphy for a number of scattered mountains and ridges on the S side of the Bay of Isles, following his visit to South Georgia in 1912-13. The South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1955-56, reported that a group name for these features is unsuitable and an altered form of the name was applied to the highest of the mountains. Mount Ashley is named for Clifford W. Ashley, American whaling historian who wrote The Yankee Whaler and Whale Ships of New Bedford.
