The mountain was named in 1904 after John Niblock, a superintendent with the Canadian Pacific Railway. Niblock was an early promoter of tourism in the Rockies and influenced the naming of some of the CPR stops in Western Canada.
Beehive Mountain was named by J. Willoughby Astley in 1890 because the mountain resembles a beehive. The mountain is also known as the Big Beehive as there is a smaller beehive shaped mountain nearby called the Little Beehive.
