Named by early postmaster Peter McDougall for the Tummel River situated near his former home at Perthshire, Scotland. He communicated the suggestion to Henry Gill of Roblin who misunderstood it as Tumbell with the result that the post office went by this name until it was changed to Tummell in 1922. The second L was later dropped.
