I dare you to try to pronounce Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg. It's in the town of Webster, Massachusetts, on the borders of Connecticut and Rhode Island, 60 miles from Boston.

For the most part, everyone just calls it Webster Lake, even after shortening it to Lake Chaubunagungamaug. But still, what a tongue twister. I mean, come on now.

According to the Homes website, the Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg area was home to the Nipmuc Indian tribe, and it means “fishing place at the boundary.”

I even googled "How to pronounce chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg" and still can't. Even the guy teaching us how to pronounce it hilariously messes it up.

Now to Maine we go, to the town of Mooselookmeguntic. It has 17 letters and five syllables. That makes it the longest town or city name without hyphens or spaces in the entire country, according to Business Insider. 

When I googled "How to pronounce Mooselookmeguntic", nothing popped up, but sounding it out helps, as it does with this next town on the list.

For the final three in this top five list, there's Kleinfeltersville in Pennsylvania. It's tied with Mooselookmeguntic for the longest town or city name without hyphens or spaces in the United States. However, while it also has 17 letters, it only has four syllables.

I guess that one isn't too tough to pronounce after sounding it out. And the same goes for Eichelbergertown, also in Pennsylvania.

Chickasawatchee, Georgia, is fun to say from this list as well, and that rounds out your top five. However, I did find this that includes a sixth town name in Virginia, but it's super easy to say, and doesn't sound as complicated or fun to say as the others.
