  • 18 Mar 1886, NATIVE NAMES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
    Sir,—Your article of to-day as to native names and the great desirableness of reviving and retaining them, is well timed and worthy of great consideration. Coming as a stranger to the colony, I have been much struck with the want of originality in your nomenclature.
    It is to a large extent Cockney, and to a large extent Scotch, Englad and Ireland both contributing a share. Looking over your maps no one, I think, could deny that the native names are, in a general way, more musical in sound ; and very likely, if we knew their meanings, more evpressive and descriptive of the places. It is a pity that more of them have not been preserved, but even for what are left, it would be very interesting if some philologist would compile a gazetteer of native names of places and their meanings, before it is too late.
    The nomenclature of the colonists is often vulgar and incongruous, aud it would be well, if it were still possible, to go back to the native. Many instances will occur to anyone.
    I was at Beaconsfield the other day (itself an incongrous name), and went up a hill a mile from the station to see what was said to be one of the finest views in Victoria, finer than that from Beaconsfield Hotel, so justly lauded by your contributor, "The Vagabond."
    The view is magnificent, but the map name of the hill that gives it is Mount Misery. To correct that incongruity, some selector has dubbed it Mount Grandview—a not incongruous, but rather pretentious substitute. The hill is rather a conspicuous one, and must have had a native name, and, if any one only knew it, a restoration might be easy. There must be any number of such instances as arguments for the course you wish followed, and which, it seems, the Legislature has contemplated.—Yours, &c., NEWCOME.
    March 16.9
