- Kerrisdale - In 1905, when the BC Electric Railway put in a tram stop at what is now 41st Avenue in Vancouver, R.H. Sperling, general manager of the company, called on the young Scottish couple,
- Mr. and Mrs. William MacKinnon, who had recently settled nearby, and invited Mrs. MacKinnon to name the new station.
- She named it after Kerrysdale, her family's home in Gairloch, Scotland. The name of the station has become the name of this Vancouver district.
