Bering named an island "St. Stephen." Golder, correlate the island of Bering with that of present-day Buldir Island, and, if so, it may have been named for the sailor that died on its discovery day. published on a 1791 map by Lieutenant Sarichev (1826, map 3), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), and thus he may be responsible for the naming.
