Descriptive Russian name, reported in 1903 by G. R. Putnam, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), from the Russian "tolstoy" meaning "thick" (p. 1013-1015). Putnam claimed (in Baker, 1906, p. 631): "The native name is "Kagalogh" * * * "which probably comes from the Aleut word "Kagaluk," meaning "stern of a baidarka," according to R. H. Geoghegan. This feature was called by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 21) Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), Vostochnoy," meaning "East Cape."
