History

Descriptive Russian name, "Otkrytyy", meaning "open", and possibly taken from the nautical term "Otkryed", meaning "open roadstead." This name was proposed by the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office as "Atkritoi Bay" in 1938. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) approved the form "Otkriti" and it was published in the 1944 Aleutian Coast Pilot as "Otkviti (Gannon) Bay" (p. 136).
