History

Name reported by Joseph Stanley-Brown, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in 1891. This appears to be a partial translation of the Aleut-Russian name "'Tug'una'raro'logh- koverushka' * * * hill near Tugunararologh (i.e. dead sea-lion place) * * * the southern of two Sealion Hills" listed by Putnam (1903, p. 1016), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS). Putnam (p. 1015) also gives the Russian name as "Propas'tchy- koverushka' * * * hill near Propastchy * * *."
