Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but we all know we have 11,482. We are humble people and rubbing the fact that we have more shoreline than California isn't something we want to do.

When it comes to naming all of those lakes there are bound to be some repeats, but there are also some really unique ones. And some that are really hard to say, especially if you didn't grow up in these parts.

*This is part one of a multi-part series of hard lake names to pronounce. If you don't see one on this list, chances are good you will see it on an upcoming list.
