In English, a coronet is a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring. By one definition, a coronet differs from a crown in that a coronet never has arches, and from a tiara in that a coronet completely encircles the head, while a tiara does not. By a slightly different definition, a crown is worn by an emperor, empress, king or queen; a coronet by a nobleman or lady.

Coronet Addition Industrial
In 1957 the land adjoining the residential developments of Argyll, Avonmore and Hazeldean, south from Argyll Road and 63 Avenue to the then city limits, and from present-day Gateway Boulevard to 75 Street, was renamed Coronet. This included Coronet Addition Industrial and Coronet Industrial. The origin of the name Coronet is not recorded.
Before this neighbourhood was named Coronet, part of it was called Speedway. In 1956 city council approved the replotting of Avonmore Addition, Belleville Gardens and Broadview for industrial land use, and named it Coronet Industrial. A decade later, the boundaries were extended south of the Canadian National Railway tracks to the neighbourhood's present limits. The origin of the name Coronet is not recorded.
