Time zone names

Casey, Palmer, and McMurdo observe the standard time of their supply bases, which are in Western Australia, Chile, and New Zealand, respectively. Therefore, they use the same time zone names as those places. Palmer was on Argentine time until 1982-05.
The only names given for the time zones of Davis, Mawson, and Syowa are Davis Time, Mawson Time, and Syowa Time. These names were made up for the tz database. There may be more authentic names, but the tz database hasn't heard of them.
The Dumont-d'Urville time zone was called Port-Martin Time from 1947 to 1952, and Dumont-d'Urville Time from 1956 to the present. Again, these names were made up. The Port-Martin base, 50 km. from Dumont-d'Urville, operated from 1947 to 1952 and then burned down.
