Tahoe is derived from the Washoe word “da ow” for lake.

According to Tahoe South: Even the name ‘Lake Tahoe’ is from the Washoe, or at least its origin is before we garbled it up. The word ‘Tahoe’ is the result of a mispronunciation of the first two syllables of the Washoe’s word – Da ow a ga – which translates to “edge of the lake.”

The only lakes larger in size in the USA are the Great Lakes.
