There are sharks in Lake Nicaragua?! I didn't know that. As if that isn't bad enough, apparently they're Bull Sharks, which are man-eaters, they thrive in fresh water AND they jump up rapids like salmon to get in and out of the lake. Why can't they just stay where they belong?!

jpcol we don't own this world, nobody said that ever. Those that come before Humans are the ones that own the world, we're just invaders to the world. Where we truly belong is in present-day Ethiopia where supposedly the first humans lived.

I must have, too. I thought I tried Lomond.. but must have spelled it some other way with alternate vowels or perhaps an extraneous "h" in there somewhere.

You should accept Tiberias for Galilee (and Kinneret). And what about Lake Pontchartrain? Coming up with type-ins for potential misspellings too intimidating to include that one?

Sea of Galilee is known as Lake Genesaret here. Wikipedia lists Lake Gennesaret as an alternative name (in addition to these kalbahamut mentioned, why leave Gennesaret from the list?). I'd say please accept. I know the name "galilee", but I always have to think hard to remember it.

I live in Michigan. Trust me, Huron and Michigan are not considered to be one lake. Lake Superior is on many lists as the largest freshwater lake.

Lake Garda is bigger and more famous than Lake Como. It is also known for its villas and - I'm speculating, but - probably has more villas on its shores than Como does.

I could forgive you not including Lake Placid (made famous by the film) but leaving out Lake Constance (Bodensee) is, quite frankly, a disgrace.

Really interesting to me is how this shows how skewed map projections can be. Lake Victoria is bigger than either lakes Michigan or Huron (incl. Georgian Bay), but it looks far smaller. And Lake Tanganyika is barely visible on the globe, but it's bigger than Great Bear, which looks huge.

They're called that because they are, in fact, lakes. Inland bodies of water.
