An early variant name was "Saint Leger". A post office called Saint Leger was established in 1848, the name was changed to Udall in 1885, and the post office closed in 2003. According to legend, the present name Udall is a contraction of "You doll, get up", a command, the story continues, was once overheard directed at a horse.
