History

According to Elliott (1881, p. 173), Goverooskie is Russian for thegulls, "Larus brevirostris, and L. tridactylus." Putnam (1903, p. 1014), lists "Gavarushka" as Russian for the red-legged gull (the lake is) so called from the large number of gulls frequenting it. Putnam (p. 1015) lists the Aleut name as "Korium-anyi," also referring to the gulls.
