I was playing around with the National Hydrography Dataset and overlaying the creek / river data over an openstreetmaps mapbox map: like so:

enter image description here

So one thing to note about that dataset is that not all creeks / rivers have names. This blue stretch of creek doesn't have a name according to the National Hydrography Dataset but according to openstreetmaps / mapbox it's named "West Fork Walnut Creek".

My question is... are there other sources for creek / river names? Like maybe there are localized sources that offer more detail for specific areas?
