Is your name Bob? Want to see how many lakes in the United States are named after you? (Twelve in all, and four of them are in Michigan!) The U.S. Geological Survey's Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) contains data about nearly 2 million geographic features in the United States. Just enter a name or any other word to find out where it is "officially" honored.
