The valley has been known locally as "Three Lakes Valley" a name duplicated by the Three Lakes Valley on Signy Island, so it was given a new name, applied by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1988, after Stephen J. Martin, British Antarctic Survey Station Commander at Grytviken, 1980–82.[1]
