History
Eskimo name which refers in meaning to the stream's estuary-like mouth. The stream has been important because of a well established campsite near its mouth. The name seems to have been first recorded as "Sinrarua" by British naval officers, 1849-53, and published on British Admiralty (Brit. Adm.) Chart 593 (Baker, 1906). Lieutenant P. H. Ray (1885, map) crossed the stream in 1883 with an Eskimo guide, and spelled the name "Singaroo."
