Here are some links that show the problems with the historical record. And even then, I believe these sources are wrong and the alternate name is Goliah, not Goliath. Unfortunately, I can't find a link to the original sources of the story. I believe the one that contains the name "Nemesis" is Thomas and Williams's History of Allegany County.

Yes, changing the name to Mt. Nemesis would be very bada**, however, failing that, changing the name to Mt. Goliath would be equally bada**.
