Here are some of the unofficial names for peaks as published in the Western Uinta Backcountry Guide (1997); which has an ISBN #. Whether or not you want to use them is up to you.

Updated. I made an educated guess that this peak is Cuberant:

Then, "Lofty" is also "Cutthroat?"

Correct on both accounts. The Lofty Peak name is older than the Cutthroat Peak name. The Cutthroat Peak name was a mistake. I am the one who wrote that book back in 1996, but I missed the earlier Lofty Peak name (1958). I was going to correct this in the second edition, but I moved to Colorado so it never happened.

PS, I still have some copies of the 1st edition if someone wants them for free.
