I wonder why this particular 7655' non-ranked summit is suggested to be named:

I've said this on other forums, but I can't figure out how Mt Evans got on the target list, but they're totally cool with Evans Avenue and the City of Evans, things named after John Evans that people encounter day-to-day far more often.

Also, John Evans was not unambiguously evil, despite these activists' un-nuanced portrayals.

I just saw this. I currently serve on the board of Colorado Fourteeners Initiative and wanted to share input that CFI provided to the Colorado Geographic Naming Advisory Board related to proposed name changes for Mount Evans.

Since they're not part of day-to-day American English, the diacritical marks are likely to be dropped over time. Leaving simply Mestaaehehe. Only seeing that, how many people would know to pronounce it mess-taw-HAY? For that matter, how many people know how to interpret the diacritical marks at all.

Owl Woman Peak seems like a good compromise, but compromise is out of fashion these days.
