The English name, Knocknagussy, appears to be an anglicisation of a different Irish name from the one recorded by Tim Robinson on his map of Connemara: Binn Dhubh. Knocknagussy suggests Cnoc na Giúise, 'hill of the pine tree', or Cnoc na Giúsaí, giúsach being a collective noun. In Connemara it can refer to pine found in the bog or bog-deal (giús portaigh) [Dinneen].
