The Roget Rocks are a small group of cliff rocks off the Danco coast of Graham Land in the north of the Antarctic Peninsula . In Hughes Bay they are 6 km southwest of Spring Point .

The British geodesist Kenneth Victor Blaiklock (* 1927) from the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey carried out the survey in April 1955. The UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee named them in 1957 after the lexicographer Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869), Secretary of the Royal Society from 1827 to 1848 and member of the Commission for the Antarctic Voyage of HMS Chanticleer (1828-1831) under the direction of Henry Foster .
