The name is derived from that of the Chilcotin River, which in turn is derived from an anglicization of Tsilhqot'in, the name of the local indigenous people, whose name in their language means "people of the red ochre river" (the "red ochre river" being the Chilko River).
The community of Chezacut is located on the north shore of the lake, as is Chezacut Cemetery Indian Reserve No. 5 nearby. Many other reserves of the Alexis Creek First Nation are also in the vicinity, generally to the west and northwest.
