Photographer's Note

The first recorded name of the lake is Lacus Lemannus, dated from Roman times; Lemannus comes from Ancient greek Limanos, Lim鈩os Limne Λιμένος Λίμνη meaning port's lake; it became Lacus Lausonius, although this name was also used for a town or district on the lake, Lacus Losanetes and then the Lac de Lausanne in the Middle Ages. Following the rise of Geneva it became Lac de Gen钁e (translated into English as Lake Geneva). In the 18th century, Lac L駑an was revived in French and is the customary name in that language. In contemporary English, the name Lake Geneva is predominant.
