The name “Nevin (King) Creek” appears on the 1915 Provincial Pre-emptor’s map.

Perhaps named for Slim Niven, “a well-known oldtimer who lived in Tête Jaune Cache during railway construction, around 1912,” according to Margaret McKirdy.

Not named after the Dunster old-timer and trapper John Niven who came from Scotland to Canada in 1923 and to B.C. in 1924.
