    I was thinking it must be in Wisconsin. They have some of the longest names I’ve ever seen.

    Well Pamela, thanks so much for the research. Why can’t things just be made simple in making up names etc.? Geez, I don’t know who made the name up, would love to know “what were they smoking?”

      Algonquin Indians came up with the name. Who knows what they were smoking though….lol

      I can’t criticize too much though….got Native American in my blood. Just not that tribe….so maybe I’m safe 😛

    Lake Chaubunagungamaug, also known as Webster Lake, is a lake in the town of Webster, Massachusetts, United States. It is located near the Connecticut border and has a surface area of 1,442 acres (5.84 km2).

    The lake’s name comes from Nipmuc, an Algonquian language, and is said to mean, “Fishing Place at the Boundaries — Neutral Meeting Grounds”.

    (taken from a wikipedia article; that’s what it redirected me to when I typed in some of the name up in the picture)
