In 1911, Arthur Oliver Wheeler [1860–1945] named this mountain Little Grizzly Peak “on account of its resemblance, on a small scale, to Mount Grizzly in the Selkirks.” Cinnamon is a coloration of the grizzly bear.

The well-known Cinnamon family of Robson Valley did not arrive in the area until the 1950s.
