Interesting bit of trivia from a video about The Great Trigonometrical Survey: Everest did not approve of the mountain many know as Mount Everest Everest named after him. At the time the name was proposed he was the prior but now retired head of the survey. He'd made a practice of using local names and pointed out that even if locals disagreed what the peek should be called his name couldn't be accurately written in the local languages. The geographic committee ignored his letter of protest.
