So named by the New Zealand GSAE (1961–62) because several peaks of the range are named after supporters of Ernest Shackleton's British Antarctic Expedition (1907–09).

Among the mountains in this range is Mount Iveagh, a 3422-metre peak on the east side of the Beardmore Glacier. Mount Iveagh was discovered by the British Antarctic Expedition and named for Edward Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh, of the firm of Guinness, who helped finance the expedition.
