History

Transliteration by Baker (1906, p. 657), of "Uzenkiy," from "uzkiy," meaning "very narrow," derived from the Russian name given to Narrow Strait, upon which the village is located. The name was reported as "Oozinkie, where there are 15 creoles." Peteroff (1881, p. 29) published the name "Selen(iye) Rus(kiy) i Kreolovy," meaning "village of Russians and croles." The name meaning "starling village" was published by Captain Tebenkov, Imperial Russian Navy (IRN) (1852, map 23).
