Glossary and Definitions ...

FIPS Codes
In the past, the federal government created a set of codes that are used to uniquely identify States, Counties and Populated Places (such as a community like Remlap). These codes form the Federal Information Processing Standard. (specifically FIPS Document 55-3).

The State Code consists of two digits, the County Code consists of three digits and the Place Code consists of five digits. The County and Place Codes must be used together with the State Code to be truly unique.

For example, the following codes apply to the community of Remlap:

- State Code:  01 (Alabama)

- State / County Code:  01 / 009 (Blount County)

- State / Place Code:  01 / 64248

The FIPS Codes have been replaced by an ANSI standard and the GNIS Feature ID. Although obsolete, the FIPS Codes are still in use by some organizations.

For more information about the FIPS Codes, please visit our Misc Page for Remlap.
GNIS Codes
The function of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) is to establish uniform names for geographic features (eg- communities, mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, etc). The BGN was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. BGN–accepted names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), which is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent identifier has been assigned for each feature in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive.

Remlap has been given the GNIS Feature ID of '125561'. Click here to see the GNIS Record for Remlap.
Portmanteau
A portmanteau is the forming of a linguistic combination or contraction by taking two (or more) words, their sound and the meaning of those words to create a new word. For example, guess and estimate becomes guesstimate. An explanation of Remlap can be found under Toponymy (see below).
Toponymy
The definition of toponymy includes the study of place names (in this case, the community of Remlap). Toponymy includes the origin of the name and any meanings or stories that might be behind the name. While we generally limit ourselves to just the origin of a community's name, we appreciate any additional information.

The toponymy of Remlap:

The first postmaster was James W. Palmer, who wanted to name the town for himself. His brother had already founded the town of Palmer (in Jefferson County). James had his way by spelling Palmer backwards.
