Etymology Not stated by Chamberlin, but looks likely derived,for reasons not obvious, but perhaps because a western USA species, from Hesperos, the evening star (the planet Venus), or relating to the Hesperides, nymphs of evening, nymphs of the West, who tend a blissful garden. And the second part of Hesperonoe derived from Antinoe, to which Chamberlin related his new genus. Brown (Composition of Scientific words) includes Hesperonoe in his examples of names derived from hesperus (Greek hesperos). [details]
