    It is an uninhabited island in the coral sea, which is notorious for its extremely flat sandbar like islands. I doubt it has a name.

    It's Mellish Reef. It's part of Australia's Coral Sea Islands territory.

    Or, if we can sell the rights, I can be the proud namer of "Wall's Ice Cream Stand - offering Ice Cream since 1982 Island #142".

    An explanation of why MitD being any larger than Huge is implausible.

    If I was a poor country I would definitely sell the right to name unnamed islands to wealthy people. Not the island itself, but the right to slap a name on it.

    Iíd be tempted to build some sort of rich person resort on the island. The island gets hit by bad cyclones, though, so the resort would need to be built to weather high winds.
