History

Russian name listed by Putnam (1903, p. 1014), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), meaning "wooded"; "so called because of the amount of drift-wood found on the beach." The Russian word "drova" means "fire-wood." Putnam (p. 1015) lists the Aleut name as "Kologho" meaning "choked" of "full," again referring to beach drift-wood.
