Default Island Names

I Posted this in the 6 Bridged island thread but did not get a response, and seems it turned into another discussion.

Wanted to know on my mapping software at work - DeLorme Street Atlas, I know it is the latest edition just do not know the date. It lists and shows Christmas Island as Plummer Island.

Do you think this is a mistake or did it at one time be named Plummer Island, and if so why. Does anyone know the history of this?

Thank you

Default Plummers Island

I found this on the Bizer site.

"5 Christmas Northern end of Paugus Bay {FKA Plummer's I}"
http://www.bizer.com/winislan.htm#islandb
I assume the FKA is (Formally known As)

Also found this old forum post by Rattlesnake Gal from 2004

Default Thank you

Thank for the info, but I was blocked from the bizer site here at work, so why did the name change and who was the island originally named after, if this was the case?
