Jim never refers to the island as anything other than Treasure Island, but Treasure Island is only the voyagers’ private nickname for the place. Why doesn’t Jim or Stevenson reveal a more geographically accurate name for this island? Does this name change our perception of the place?

The island's location has no bearing on the story. This is an adventure story, the island is a part of the adventure. It's an idea more than a location.
