Wasn't it also known as Seward's Icebox? That's what I've always heard it as.

Alaska may have been called that but the question asks what the purchase of Alaska was called

Please refer to the Bering Strait as a "body of water" rather than an ocean. I was thinking Pacific or Arctic.

It's referred to as an "ocean strait". Nothing wrong with that as I see it?

For whatever reason I kept thinking "the ocean STRAIGHT to Alaska's west" I must have typed Pacific at least 5 times. :)

Have to agree with the Mt. McKinley comments – the mountain's officially-recognized name has reverted to Denali, so you should remove the "alternative name" question, or change it to "What was the above's previous name?", with "Mt. McKinley" as the answer.
