- Port Hammond - After two young Englishmen, John Hammond, a farmer, and William Hammond, a civil engineer, who owned the townsite at the time of the building of the CPR.
- They had hopes of Port Hammond becoming a port of call for deep-sea shipping.
- Mount Robie Reid - After Robie L. Reid (18661945), prominent Vancouver lawyer and BC historian.
- Members of the undergraduate History Club at UBC used to be invited to his home to see his splendid collection of British Columbiana.
- After his death these books joined those of his friend Judge Howay in the Howay-Reid collection in the UBC library. (See also Judge Howay, Mount.)
- Rolley Lake - After James Rolley, who homesteaded here in 1902.
- Websters Corners - After James M. Webster, who arrived from Ontario in 1883 and became the first postmaster here. He named the place after himself.
- Alouette Lake - This was Lillooet Lake until 1917, when the name was changed to avoid confusion with the much larger Lillooet Lake north of Garibaldi Park.
- Presumably the new name was chosen because it harmonizes with the old. Alouette is the French for 'lark.'
