- Named for John Tebbutt (1834-1916), an Australian astronomer.
- This replacement name for a formerly lettered crater was introduced on LTO-62A4 (for which it served as the chart title). It appears in the cumulative list of approved names in IAU Transactions XVB (1973). Since it does not appear in any prior IAU Transactions, it was probably approved at the 1973 meeting. Biographical information was unofficially reported in Ashbrook, 1974. - Jim Mosher
