Mount Mangart was attested in historical sources in 1617 as Monhart. The name is of German origin, derived from the personal name Mainhart (from Old High German Maganhard). In addition to serving as the name of the mountain, this German name has also developed into Slovene surnames such as Manhart and Menart.
The road to Mangart Saddle (Slovene: Mangartsko sedlo; 2,072 metres or 6,798 feet) is the highest road in Slovenia. The Mangart Pass Lodge is located at the western foot of Mangart. There are two lakes under Mangart's northern face.
