Names that other countries have for this feature:
A peak 2422m rising above the west side of Beacon Valley, 7.8km southwest of Pyramid Mountain, in Quartermain Mountains, Victoria Land. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-MF07
The name appears to be first used on a 1961 New Zealand Lands and Survey Department map compiled from New Zealand field surveys, 1957-60, and U.S. Navy (USN) aerial photographs of that period. Presumably named after William J. Weller, Royal Navy (RN), a seaman of the ship "Discovery" during the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE), 1901-04, led by R.F. Scott. In November 1903, Weller and Thomas Kennar (Kennar Valley, q.v.) accompanied Hartley T. Ferrar in the first geological reconnaissance of Quartermain Mountains.
