The Indian name, which means 'The fishing place at the boundaries, the neutral meeting ground'...

Actually, the proper translation is:
I fish on my side,
you fish on your side,
no one fishes in the middle.

From TFA: Locals tend not to bother using its correct name and simply refer to it as Lake Webster

They really ought to subtitle the sign with that.

"I went to Lake Chargogggooog... Lake Chargohog... the lake the locals call 'Webster', last weekend."

Actually, the proper translation is:
I fish on my side,

When NPR did this story earlier this week, complete with frequent pronunciation, they clarified that that translation is at least disputed, and that the dominance of that translation comes from an old song.

Or are the conquering assholes who left them to rot on small isles of dirt the real dicks? The world may never know.

what the heck does matt millen have to do with this?

It's a phonetic rendering of a name in another language. And both variants are pronounced the same. So I say they're both ok, just like Foxborough and Foxboro.

/Or Nakito and N'aquiteau.
