The word cajilon is the term for "deer antler" in Northern New Mexican Spanish. The mountain was so named because of its resemblance to an antler. The mountain gave its name to the nearby creek (Canjilon Creek), to the nearby lakes (Canjilon lakes), and to the village of Canjilon.
Canjilón Mountain was the site of a 3.7 magnitude earthquake on June 4, 2008.
