The form Cruach Mhín an Fheannta from logainm.ie is supported by James O’Kane (Séamas Ó Catháin), who interprets it as 'the stack of the high field of the flaying' in his place-name survey of the parishes of Inishkeel and Kilteevoge. The Discovery map has a slightly different version: Cruach Mhín an Neanta, apparently 'the stack of the high field of the nettles'.   Cruach Mhín an Fheannta is the 644th highest place in Ireland.
