Some people call it a water oak.
As I am sure that you know, northern red oak and water oak are very different species.  Many local common names are very misleading and quite wrong.  Down in the Gulf South, water oak, willow oak, and laurel oaks are called "pin oak".  They look nothing like the real pin oak, Quercus palustris.

It is interesting to read the names used and the discussions about same are similar species across the country, but agree it can be confusing to a layman such as myself.
