    1. Your question made me curious. This is what Wikipedia says:

      Mount Bachelor is so called because it “stands apart” from the Three Sisters, a group of three volcanic mountains that are northwest of Mount Bachelor. In early days Bachelor Butte was frequently called “Brother Jonathan”, or “Mount Brother”, but like the names of the Three Sisters, “Johnathan” and “Brother” fell out of use.[9] The resort developers were concerned that skiing on a butte might be perceived by consumers as “small-time” and so named their resort Mount Bachelor.[9] Over time the popularity of the ski area led to the name Mount Bachelor coming into popular usage and in a divided decision, the Oregon Geographic Names Board voted to change the name from Bachelor Butte to Mount Bachelor.[9][10]

I'd love to hear from you
