Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamauggs is the longest name place anywhere in the United States and the sixth longest in the world and its just been discovered that the spelling may be wrong.

Sitting in Webster, Massachusetts Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg or Lake Webster for short was discovered to have the wrong spelling after an investigation by local Telegram & Gazette of Worcester newspaper.

The bizarre name comes from the language of the local Nipmuck native American tribe and translates to "Englishmen at Manchaug at the fishing place at the boundary although." The name was applied in the 19th century when settlers built factories in the region.

Officials at the local Chamber of Commerce agreed that some signs surrounding the lake were wrong, noting that an "o" at letter 20 where a "u" should have been, and an "h" at letter 38 where an "n" should go.

Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg has 17 uses of "g". Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamauggare thus has the most instances of any letter in a word.

Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg also contains 10 instances of the letter "a" (not including the "a" in "lake"), more than any word in the English language.
