History
Russian name given as M(ys) Mordvinova, probably from the word morda meaning "muzzle" or "snout" (the point does look like the snout of an animal) by Captain Staniukovich in 1828 (Journal of the Russian Hydrographic Dept., 1850, v. 8, p. 63-75). This point was called M(ys) Mordvinova (M(ys) Oksenova) by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 26). It was also called Cape Lincoln by U.S. Bureau of Fisheries (USBF) in 1888.
