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.
