What’s in a name Why Spelling errors of course

Mass.~ Lake Has over 45 letters in its name
WEBSTER, Mass. – Officials have agreed to correct spelling errors in road signs pointing to a central Massachusetts lake with a 45-letter name. Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in Webster Mass. has one of the world’s longest place names. It’s been spelled several ways over the years. Some locals have just given up and just simply call it Lake Webster. What were our ancestors thinking ?
and I thought spelling Massachusetts was hard enough. Perhaps next time they could use spell check
