Georgia Place-Names by Kenneth K. Krakow

The origin of the name of a county, town, river, or any geographical feature prominent enough to have
been given a name always excites the imagination of people who live in or around that community or place. But often it excites an outsider even more. Such is the case of Kenneth Kemler Krakow, a native of Iowa, who has been in Georgia for six years. During these years he has sought the origin of every place-name in this state.

I wonder if anybody's done one of these for Alabama.
