In 1826 Sir John Franklin named a prominent mountain in this area probably for George Bellas Greenough, 1778-1855, founder of the Geological Society of London and first president in 1811. The exact idenity of Sir Franklin's is unknown. E. de K. Leffingwell is responsible for the present application of the name.
