Description (see definition): Broad, rather flat-topped nunatak, 460 m, standing between Coal Nunatak and Tethys Nunataks in the SE corner of Alexander Island. First seen and photographed from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and mapped from photos obtained on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg. Observed from the NW (the direction from which Ellsworth photographed this nunatak), only the summit protrudes above the coastal ice, and it was uncertain whether this was a Peak on Alexander Island or an island in George VI Sound. Its true nature was determined by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) who surveyed this nunatak in 1949. Named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for its association with nearby Saturn Glacier, Titan being one of the satellites of Saturn.
