Named in 1918 by US@C&GS for Admiral Robley Evans, U.S. Navy (USN), 1846-1912, "who many years before, as Captain, had policed the Alaska Sealing grounds." U. S. Grant, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), reported the local name of this island as "Hoodoo," a name shown on Federal maps for many years. However, it was found that many mariners feared to approach the island because of its name, which prompted the proposal to commemorate Admiral Evans.
