Eponyms

An eponym is a word derived from someone's name.  For example, the sandwich is named for the Earl of Sandwich who, not wishing to be called away from a lively game of cards, bid a servant to bring him a serving of meat between two slices of bread so as, informally, to sate his hunger.  Well, this site presents my personal collection of eponyms.  To see the words, please visit "The List" below.

If you know of any eponyms not yet on the list, please contribute them!  Mi casa es tu casa.
