Dear 100 Hour Board,

How many Bridal Veil Falls are there in the world?
Likewise, what is the most common name, in the US, for a waterfall?

-This is a clever alias.


Dear friend,

Answer: a lot of them (at least 38), and one on every continent but Antarctica. Most of them are in the United States, though. Especially Colorado.

North America:

South America:





As far as common waterfall names, Bridal Veil Falls is by far the most popular. Other frequently-used names seem to include Angel Falls (or something angel-related, such as Angel's Staircase) and Rainbow Falls.
