The Mongolian name for the grebes is Шунгуур shuŋguur, related to the verb шунгах shuŋgakh 'to dive'. (This is not to be confused with Шумбуур shumbuur, derived from the similar verb шумбах shumbakh, also meaning 'to dive', which refers, however, to the Pochards.)

In Inner Mongolia the grebes are known as Ажир ajir (also Ажир нугас ajir nugas 'ajir duck'). Ажир нугас ajir nugas is defined in Mongolian dictionaries as 'a kind of small-bodied wild duck with tasty meat'.
