Originally bearing the name 3rd Kreuzköpfe, the first ascendant, E.J. Häberlin from Frankfurt am Main suggested to rename it after Franz Senn, who had made many first ascents in the Ötztal Alps in the 1860s, including the neighboring Fineilspitze and Kreuzspitze, and the Fluchtkogel, Mutmalspitze, Firmisanschneide, Spiegelkogel, and Weißseespitze. The nomenclature was accepted by Heinrich Heß in his chapter on the Ötztal Alps in Die Erschliessung der Ostalpen, Volume 2.
