Bratina Island (78°0′S 165°33′E) is a small island lying at the north tip of Brown Peninsula in the Ross Ice Shelf. It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names in 1963 for Chief Aviation Machinists Mate Joseph Bratina, U.S. Navy Squadron VX-6, stationed at McMurdo Station in the 1958–59, 1960–61 and 1961–62 summer seasons.
