The name was recorded in 1914 by E. L. Jones, U.S. Bureau of Fisheries (USBF). According the Alaska Historical Commission, the feature is named for Fred H. Gold and J.H Galligan, two men who had a fish trap near the rapids leading to the lagoon. This trap was there from around 1902 to at least through 1918. Gold was still living in Lake Bay (q.v.) in 1919 with his family including a son he named "Weight Gold."
