They have TAUTOLOGICAL NAMES- i.e., their names literally means "LAKE".
DAL LAKE, LAKE TAHOE, LAKE NYASSA, LAKE CHAD, and one other lake, maybe the GAUBE LAKE..

all lakes have Tautological names- that is their names effectively mean "lake" and so their name turns out to be "lake lake".

All of them essentially mean “lake” (or rather “lake lake”)-Tautological names.
The lakes given are:-
Dal Lake (Kashmir), Gaube Lake, Lake Chad (Chad), Lake Nyassa (Malawi), Lake Tahoe (California) and Lake Hayq (Ethiopia)

Vishesh said...

The names of all these lakes are tautological, i.e their name means lake itself in the native language of their region.

For ex. Dal means lake in Balti language, Chad means lake in Bornu,
Tahoe means lake in Washo etc.
