It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names after William G. Gould, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration specialist, from the 1960s to the mid-1990s, in the archiving of Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) satellite images of the world, including those used for AVHRR image maps of the Antarctic continent.
