History

This name is a translation of the Aleut name, "Naro'am-an'yi," recorded by Putnam (1903, p. 1015), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS); and "so called by Atka (island in the Aleutians) natives having lived in the vicinity." The name was published in 1898 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS).
