So What’s In a Name?   
While we realize this might not rise to the National news, we live here and our identity is at stake. Small wonder that this debate consumes us all.

We cannot agree amongst ourselves about the Indian derivation meaning of Skaneateles.

Conventional wisdom is that it means: “long, beautiful lake” but there is another argument it means: “long, lanky squaw who likes to make of babies”. 

By the way, it is SkAneateles, New York
