Broken Hand
Broken Hand is next to Broken Top but does not appear to be part of Broken Top. Broken Hand (8,376 feet) was named for Thomas "Broken Hand" Fitzpatrick, a mountain man, who passed through Oregon in about 1843.

I had the same assumption. Broken Hand Fitzpatrick was a scout for John C. Fremont when he traveled through Central Oregon in 1843. The Oregon Board of Geographic Names recognized Fitzpatrick by naming the mountain after him.
