History

Named "Isla San Fernando," i.e. "Saint Ferdinand Island," by Francisco Antonio Maurelle who "reached the southern point of this island on the night of May 21, 1779. He again anchored at this point May 30 and probably named the island at that time in honor of San Fernando, King of Spain, whose day it was" (Wagner, 1937, p. 409).
