Disclaimer: Many names have multiple origins, and multiple meanings. This list only contains the water-related meanings!

Having said that, although this list was made with thorough research, I relied on the internet for this research, and I'm aware that not everything online is reliable. If you spot something you think is an error, please do let me know in the comments so I can put an amendment.
