Famous names that spring to mind include the Mississippi, the Amazon, the Nile (which is the longest) and the Yangtze. In Europe some names include the Seine, the Thames, the Rhine and the Danube. Then there are others like the Tigris and the Limpopo - but it would take too long to name them all, please have a look at this list.
