The name was suggested by Diane McKnight, leader of U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) teams which made extensive studies of the hydrology of streams in the Lake Fryxell basin, 1987-94. Named after hydrologist Paul B. von Guerard, a member of the field team in three seasons, 1990-94, who assisted in establishing stream gaging stations on streams flowing into Lake Fryxell in the 1990-91 season.
