Originally called Aylward Lake by early miners for Edward Aylward who, in 1884, located mining claims in the vicinity. The present name is derived from the name of the Auks, a subdivision of the Tlingit Indians, who lived in this area (Dearmond, 1957,p. 6). The name was published by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) (Knopf, 1912a, pl. 1).
