White Clouds Above Spring Lake - Middle Island, New York by 

The word lake comes from Middle English lake (“lake, pond, waterway”), from Old English lacu (“pond, pool, stream”), from Proto-Germanic *lakō (“pond, ditch, slow moving stream”), from the Proto-Indo-European root *leǵ- (“to leak, drain”). Cognates include Dutch laak (“lake, pond, ditch”), Middle Low German lāke (“water pooled in a riverbed, puddle”), German Lache (“pool, puddle”), and Icelandic lækur (“slow flowing stream”). Also related are the English words leak and leach.
