Default Excuse My Noob-ness

I'm just a little curious about what they call AOSP. I know about vanilla android, which some guy claimed was the groundwork for all other phones, but what about these other roms. What is the difference between CyanogenMod, SlimRom, Carbon ROM, BeanStalk, AOKP, Paranoid Android, PAC ROM... Etc etc?

AOSP = Android Open Source Project. Pretty much stock or vanilla android.

Those other ones are various versions of android with there own tweaks. Have to try then out to see the difference or Google each one.

So Google has nothing to do with those others listed?
