- Harwood Island - Named by Vancouver, who gave no indication as to whom Harwood might be. Captain Walbran believed that the man in question was Edward Harwood, naval surgeon and numismatics enthusiast, who died in 1814.
- This Harwood was described as 'a benevolent friend and an elegant scholar.'
- Haslam Lake - After Andrew Haslam, pioneer lumberman.
- He bought the Nanaimo Sawmill in 1892, served as mayor of Nanaimo in 1892-3, and was an MLA and MP. In 1906 he moved to Vancouver and set up the provincial government's log-scaling organization.
- Lois Lake - After Captain Babbington of the tug Lois had obligingly transported some surveyors from Texada Island to Stillwater, they offered to name some geographic feature after him.
- Babbington vehemently refusing to let them do so, they named this lake after his tugboat.
