The suburb was named after Walter Alexander Birrell Haynes and his wife Margaret, who moved to the district sometime before 1910 and operated a dairy farm in the area for many years. Members of the Haynes family have made a significant contribution to local community organisations such as sporting clubs for many years, and helped establish many other groups. Walter Haynes was the Chairman of the Armadale-Kelmscott Road Board between 1938 and 1946.[2]

The locality was formed from Brookdale on 1 April 2008.[2]

The Haynes Shopping Centre is named for the suburb but is located in the adjacent locality of Armadale.
