Lake names in Lake District

  • I keep seeing references to "Lake Windermere" and "Lake Ullswater". These are wrong names.

    Most recently, I saw these in your webcam views. Are these your names for them, or just copied from the webcam data?

    For reference, they have names such as
    Coniston Water
    Rydal Water
    Derwent Water
    Bassenthwaite Lake (there is one called "Lake"!)

    I appreciate there will be bigger problems in the world, but these names are a part of our local culture and it's being diluted :-(
