British Columbia Tourism Region : Cariboo Chilcotin Coast
- After a Chilcotin Indian chief. In 1861 Ranald Macdonald and John G. Barnstorm, describing a recent trip from Alexandria to Bella Coola, mentioned 'Lake Anawhim.'
- The Indian name was 'Na-coont-loon,' meaning 'a fence built across' or a 'fish trap.' ANAHIM PEAK was a well-known source of obsidian, for which the Indians came from far and wide.
- Entiako Lake - According to Father Ouilette, this Carrier Indian name means 'lake with a brown-coloured creek.'
- Mount Davidson after Professor John Davidson of UBC, who did the first botanizing in Garibaldi Park around 1912. In 1918 he founded the Vancouver Natural History Society, which he headed until 1937.
- Heckman Pass - Named, on the recommendation of the Bella Coola Board of Trade, after Max Heckman, a longtime resident of the area.
- Hunlen Falls - These, the third highest falls in British Columbia (1,300 feet or 396 metres), were discovered in 1911 by Walter and Frank Ratcliffe, who named them after the Indian whose trapline ran by them.
- Kluskus Lakes - From the Carrier Indian word meaning 'place of small whitefish.'
- Mount MacKenzie - After Alexander Mackenzie (1822-92), Prime Minister of Canada from 1873 to 1878.
