There are still plenty unnamed places on the map. If you were given a chance to name one, what would you chose and what you would you give to it?

I would go for a mountain.
Would call it Mt. Thunder

Well, there's this 6 acre lake 3500' south of the Klonaqua lakes.  It's supposedly unnamed.  I'm sure it has its own unofficial name.

I'd pick some abstract, made up name that everyone would say, "what the heck is that?"

I could see it now, the whole history forum would be up in arms trying to find out the etymology of the word.

While I haven't selected a specific unnamed body of water that I could seek out and name, I do have a name in mind for what to name it when I do come across one:

Ssabmud

That's right.  I said Ssabmud.

The name has special meaning to me because for multiple months after I found this website, I spent hours trying to find Ssabmud on a map... any map, because it was discussed here all the time.  In fact, it used to be mentioned here all the time.

Yes, I did eventually figure it out.

The southern flank of Snowking Mountain in GPW has two unmapped and unnamed lakes. I've been calling them Full Moon (larger, glacial) and Half Moon (smaller, clear, empties into Full Moon), due to the barren, moon-like conditions of the basin. I've heard that the larger one has been referred to as Phantom. The outflow from this basin heading Illabot Creek has an incredible wash channel I call Halfpipe.

We already have a Joker Mountain.  How about a Ten, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace?   Then you could do the royal flush.  A chamber pot could be on the last peak.

If I come in possesion of the NWHikers Traveling Summit Register again I may try and place it on Peak 6628 in the Olympics.

This is north of Buckhorn Lake and the coordinates are 47* 51' 10" N  and 123* 07' 06" W

I will name it "NWHikers Traveling Summit Register Peak".

I got my eyeballs on a peak which after climbing I will petition the USGS to let me name it Shannon Peak.
