Adopted in 1965 on map 93H/16, as labelled on 1929 survey plan 10T264, “McGregor River area,” by Allen John Campbell [1882–1967], British Columbia Land Surveyor, and as identified in the 1953 BC Gazetteer. Presumably named by Campbell.

A pommel is the knob-like protuberance at the front of a saddle, and this feature is located at the end (and is the highest summit) of an undulating ridgeline extending southwesterly from Mount Sir Alexander.
