- Graham River - After Lieutenant John R. Graham, MC, BCLS, who made surveys in this area. He was killed in France in World War I.
- Hudson's Hope - This is the municipality's official spelling of its name even though the post office here, ever since it was opened in 1913, has used the name 'Hudson Hope.'
- The post was known as early as 1873 as 'Hudson's Hope' or 'The Hope of Hudson.' The origin of the name is unknown.
- Sir William Butler, who is named, however, after the next white man to go that way, Joseph Howse, who used the same route in 1810 when sent by the HBC to find out what the NWC was doing on the far side of the Rockies.
- Howse established a post near present-day Kalispell, Montana.
- Nabesche River - This is the Sekani Indian word for 'ottertail.'
- Ne-Parle-Pas Point - Preserves the memory of the Ne-Parle-Pas Rapids, obliterated when the waters of the Peace River rose behind the W.A.C. Bennett Dam.
- Ne-parle-pas means 'does not speak,' and these rapids received their name because they made remarkably little noise.
- Voyageurs coming down the Peace River, not hearing the rapids, could be into them with practically no warning.
- Portage Mountain - So named in 1875 by A.R.C. Selwyn of the Geological Survey of Canada. Because of the rapids in the canyon of the Peace River before the building of the W.A.C. Bennett Dam, canoes were generally portaged past the mountain.
