This brook is about a mile from my house. An Indian name meaning "water flowing from the hills" Twenty nine letters The road sign keeps going missing, oh I wonder why
The town have now inscribed the name on a large rock by the side of the road, let's see them try to lift that
Some brookies in there and gets a small rainbow stocking by the state in the spring.

Eddie: Interesting name for sure, I can see why the sign keeps disappearing.

Default Re: Brook names

There's lake near me called CHARGOGGAGOGGMANCHAUGGAUGGAGOGGCHAUBUNAGUNGAMAUGG
(45 letters )
It means “You fish on your side, I fish on my side, and nobody fishes in the middle"

Supposedly the sign is not even spelled correctly but then again ...who's gonna know ?

And I thought Piscataquis was bad, I don't remember that one, if I remember correctly there were a couple of nice streams just across the NY border from Sherman, never fished them I just drove by.

Default Re: Brook names

so how about this Welsh town on the isle of Anglessy

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-llantysiliogogogoch

The name translates as "St Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio of the red cave".

When I lived in England many years ago a guy in a pub taught me how to pronounce it.... The Ale helped a great deal I recall.......

Im guessing these streams have nicknames for us simpletons. I'll bet this one is locally known as the CHAR or CHARGO

By the time you've read the sign, the hatch would be over.

Default Re: Brook names

The locals might pronounce the first three syllabols with mazimum disdain on the second and third "Char-gog-gag" hoping non-resident fishermen won't eat the brook trout.

Perfect English name for a brook filled with putrid brook trout if pronounced with emphasis and appropriate facial experssions.

Named by a beautiful, young Indian Princess who wouldnt set foot in it, much less eat something out of there.

Default Re: Brook names

That my friends, is just the Indians F@cking with us palefaces. Kind of like the Welch, with their "just for the Sassenach" spellings. The natives probably called it their equivalent of "Little Creek". They just won't admit it.
