After Lars Eric Arnelius, 1867-1915, naval officer, member of the Swedish- Russian Arc-of-Meridian Expeditions to Spitsbergen 1899 and 1900. The glacier was mapped and named by Prince Albert I of Monaco's expedition to Spitsbergen in 1899. During his stay at the northern coast of Spitsbergen the Prince met the Swedish expedition-ship "Svensksund" which accompanied the Prince's yacht from Raudfjorden to the wintering station of the Swedish Arc-of-Meridian expedition at Sorgfjorden. At that time the Prince made the acquaintace of many of the Swedish scientists and officers, after whom, and other Swedish scientists, he named a number of glaciers and mountains near Raudfjorden.
