The peak was named in honour of pioneering climbers Don and Phyllis Munday who first climbed it explored and charted much of the southern Coast Mountains, including much of western Garibaldi Provincial Park near Whistler but also many remote peaks lesser-known than those near the resort. The Mundays were the discoverers of Mount Waddington, formerly dubbed by them Mystery Mountain; they originally spotted it from Mount Arrowsmith on Vancouver Island but explored the Waddington Range in the hope of locating and measuring it, although someone else performed its first ascent.
