History

Name reported by H. W. Elliott in 1874. Putnam 71903, (p1015), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) , lists the Russian name as "Propas'tcky," meaning "perished." So called because dead sea lions have been found on shore. The Aleut name is similar in meaning; "Tug'una'raro'logh," meaning "dead sea lion place" (p1016).
