    Does anyone out there know why some lakes have their name in front of the word "lake" (i.e. Pass lake) and some have them behind the word "lake"? (i.e. Lake Crescent):??

    Probably for the same reason that some mountains are called Mount X and some are called Y Mountain. We speak a language that is sometimes not as strictly rational as it could be.
