The name Tillberg was given to a group of four rocky outcrops in this area but, since they are not conspicuous topographically, the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1963 recommended that the name be transferred to this more useful landmark. Named by Dr. Otto Nordenskjold after Judge Knut Tillberg, contributor to the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE), 1901-04.
