|Description:||10 mi. NE of Dolgoi I., one of Paulof Is., Aleutian Range|
|History:||In 1868 the name Wossnessenski Isand was shown on U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) charts, undoubtedly named in honor of Ilia (Elia) G. Wosnesenski who in 1842-44 explored western Alaska for the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences. This i island was formerly named "O(strov) Peregrebnoy" by father Ioann Veniaminov (1840, v. 1, p.252), which is the Russian form of the Aleut name "Unatkuyuk" meaning "crested" or "serrated." Captain F. P. Lutke, Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), in 1836 reported it as " (Iie) Peregrebny."|
