Aboriginal name[edit]

What is Aboriginal name of lake?--Kaiyr (talk) 18:19, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Disambig'd as "Uganda" - why?[edit]

The current title of the article, Lake Albert (Uganda), seems rather odd since the lake is 50% in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I think there's a good case to be made for this being the primary topic of the Lake Albert page (currently a disambig). A more acceptable alternative might be Lake Albert (Central Africa) or Lake Albert (Great Lakes).—Brigade Piron (talk) 23:59, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

The move to the Uganda version was performed unilaterally without discussion (normally, all but the most obvious moves require discussion). As this clearly was a misleading name considering that half the lake is in another country, I have moved it back to the original name. If there is a need for further specification (e.g., Central Africa if there are other similarly named lakes in the continent; I'm not aware of any) it can be done, but otherwise it is better to keep it as simple as possible.
