The feature is extremely prominent and has a long history of informal usage among British Antarctic Survey (BAS) (ca. 1955) and later tourist personnel. The feature is known in the mountaineering world as “Cape Renard Towers”. The peaks were named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 2008 after Una Spivey, staff member of Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) at Stanley, Falkland Islands.
