Excerpt from A Record of Tasmanian Nomenclature: With Dates and Origins It is curious to note, too, the sys tens of nomenclature adopted by differ ent persons. The early Governors largely adopted either personal names or place names familiar to them by early association - as Bothwell, Launces ton. And Perth. Some explorers drew on classic lore for their purpose. And thus we have Mounts Olympus and Ida, and the River Styx. Others became reminiscent of Britain's wars, with the result that Tasmania has the Inkerman River, ' Mt. Wellington, and' Alma Range. Some turned their thoughts into the paths of research. And bestowed the names of great scientists, as Hartz, Darwin, Huxley, and others. Thus, the source of Tasmanian names is as puzzling as it is diversified.
