The name "Windermere" appears to be a fusion of Old Swedish and Old English, the first listed reference to it being in the late 14th century as "Wynandermer", the first portion of the name is assumed to refer to a personal name Vinandr (Old Swedish), and the following portion "mere", that means a lake or pool (Old English). However the town did not use this name until hundreds of years later.

Windermere - Main RoadThe former village of Birthwaite only grew to be "Windermere" in 1847 following the arriving of the Kendal and Windermere Railway, the executive favouring to call the train station after the lake and not naming it after the village, hence effectively the train company afforded the town its identify!
