History
Named by the Russians from its resemblance to Alaid Island, one of the Kuril Islands in Russia, "sometimes called Little Alaid, presumably to distinguish it from that island. The American whalers call it Alida and C. Grewingk said Alaid or Herzfels (German)-Serdtse Kamen" (Baker, 1906, p. 88). Captain Tebenkov (1852. map 30), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), reported the name Alaidskaya Pupka, meaning Heart Rock or Navel of Alaid.
