This peak is unnamed on OSI maps. However, the name Cnoc an Chorrain / Corraun Hill is used locally for the whole bulk of this mountain, not just for the lower western peak where this name is marked by OSI. Named Slieve Aghkerane on EastWest Corraun map, 2016. This version of the name comes from 'A New Map of Ireland' by Daniel Beaufort 1797 which is, in this area based on MacKenzie's sea charts of 1776 (Barry Dalby). Slieve Aghkerane is an unusual anglicisation of Ir. Sliabh an Chorráin, 'mountain of the hook'. It was the tradition for local children to gather bilberries on the mountain, and also another kind of small white berry called caora aitinn, which were bottled in whiskey, buried, and kept as remedies for ailments. This took place on the last Sunday of July, known locally as Garlic Sunday (apparently a corruption of 'garland') or Domhnach Chrom Dubh [MacNeill, 191-92]. Previously Cullydoo in MV.
