History

Reported in 1950 by D. M. Hopkins, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). So named because from "the north the contours of the mountain suggest a reclining nude figure. 'Boyan' is a Swedish feminine given name and was selected by members of the Geological Survey Field party in 1948 for its euphoniousness and femininity."
