History

Name given in 1909 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) to eliminate duplication of names in this area. This point was first named "Mys Otrubistoy," from "Otrub," meaning "cape of a surface of a piece cut off," in 1839 or 1840 by Murashev. Baker (1906, p. 139) published "Bluff Cape" as the translation of Murashev's name.
