History
Name derived from Three Saints Harbor and reported by Petroff in the 10th Censusin 1880, 1893, p. 32). Called "Z(aliv) Lyakhik" or "Lyakhik Bay" by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 23). Baker (1906, p. 625) transliterated the Russian spelling of this Aleut name as "Liakik," "perhaps from liak, the Aleut name for the black-footed goose." R. H. Geoghegan (notes) suggests "Liakik," "may by dual form of laq, blackfoot goose-pair of geese."
