This map contains quite a few “new” names, meaning names that are not shown on current street maps, topographic maps, or nautical charts. All of the names shown on the map are now in the official federal database of place names (see http://geonames.usgs.gov/), which is consulted by map makers when they revise maps. However, there is no guarantee that any of these “new” names will appear on any future maps. This map also has two other changes compared to recent Anne Arundel County ADC map books: we dropped Howard Creek (shown as part of Luce Creek on the ADC map) from our map because we determined this is a historical name for Luce Creek, not a current name for part of that creek. We also changed the location of Pleasant Lake since its location on the ADC map was incorrect.
We have listed below the origins or references for the “new” names that we could identify. For “new” names on this map other than those listed here, the sources were all old maps and we have no information about the reference for the name, although this information may be available from other sources.
New descriptive or historical names:
New names honoring people:
