сегодня я узнала, что в Питере есть Турухтанные острова. По сведениям Википедии никакого отношения к турухтанам не имеющие, название происходит от искажённой формы слова «крахмал» (по схеме «крахмал» — «крухтмал» — «трухман» — «трухтан»), поблизости в 18 веке располагалась фабрика крахмала и пудры.

TIL: there is a district in Saint-Petersburg named Turukhtan Islands. What a bizarre and beautiful name! But according to Wikipedia it has nothing to do with turukhtan birds ( Ruff ), it is just hugely distorted word for "starch", there was a starch-producing factory nearby in the eighteenth century.
