This hill is unnamed on OS maps. The names Lengad (recte Glengad) or Dooncarton and Barnacuille (recte Barnacuillew) which appear on the Discovery map are townlands. Barnacuillew is derived from Ir. Barr na Coilleadh [logainm.ie], 'top of the wood', and is therefore likely to have referred originally to a hill. William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) gives the name Gubbin (prob. Ir. Gobán, 'little beak') for the SW spur which corresponds to the 233m spot height.
Barr na Coilleadh is the 1254th highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/993/
