Jackalope Bay is a proposed name of the northeast arm of the small, unnamed playa to the west of the Blue Wing Mountains. The unnamed playa is not Blue Wing Flat.[1]

The idea was to promote the Jackalope, a mythical hybrid of a jackrabbit and an antelope. Naming a bay on a dry lake was considered even more absurd. The location is 40°24'26.0"N 119°01'57.5"W.[2]

The first reading was in January, 2019.[3]

At the second hearing in May 2019, the Nevada State Board on Geographic Names stated that they had received an objection from the Pershing County Commissioners and a motion for a third reading was passed.[4]
