This name does not appear on pre-OS maps, but Ainslie/Fife (1775) and Ainslie/West Fife (1827) show a small settlement called Sodom nearby, on the lands of South Dundonald. Note also the nearby biblical name of Dothan ADN.

The name is also rare on OS maps, not appearing for example on OS 6 inch 1856, OS 1 inch 1899, or OS 1 inch 1928; nor does it appear on OS Pathf., although the feature is still shown.
