El-Baz and Ghoneim (2007) named this crater "Saghira", an Arabic word meaning "small", given its small diameter (2.7 km in diameter) in comparison with the so-called "Kebira" (31 km in diameter) structure (Kebira meaning big in Arabic), which had been described in the same area. Saghira is a partial ring feature 2.7 km in diameter, located 10 km north-northeast of the Oasis impact structure.
