Author Tracy Ross attempted to get this minor point named "Mount Rejection" in 2007, and wrote an article for Backpacker Magazine about the experience. The name was intended to be a tribute to hopeful students denied admission to schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, and Oxford, all of which have nearby peaks named in their honor.

There is no record of this name every being officially approved, perhaps due to the low prominence and relative inconspicuousness of this peak.
