The Irish name, Sliabh Bán, is fairly transparent. However, the origin of the English name, Soarns Hill, is obscure. It may be derived from Ir. sorn, 'kiln', but the hill seems rather too high and remote for this. There were limekilns near the coast at Carnlough.   Soarns Hill is the 929th highest place in Ireland.
