The skuas or jaegers were earlier known as Хулгайч цахлай khulgaich tsakhlai 'robber gull' in Mongolian naming, in common with usage in many languages.

The 2007 official names assigned them the new name of Хайлгана khailgan. This was originally a name for the larger gulls and did not specially refer to the stercorariids.

The family name of the Stercorariidae, Захлайнхан zakhlaiŋkhaŋ, derives from the word Захлай zakhlai, which is a variant of the ordinary word for gull, Цахлай tsakhlai. This is possibly an error and in some sources the family name is given as Хайлгана khailgan.
