eponym | Word of the Day

eponym | Word of the Day


eponym   
\EP-uh-nim\
noun
1. a person, real or imaginary, from whom something, as a tribe, nation, or place, takes or is said to take its name: Brut, the supposed grandson of Aeneas, is the eponym of the Britons.
2. a word based on or derived from a person's name.
Quotes
What Calvin Klein, designer, wanted to draw attention to was Calvin Klein, trademark. Still, if some of the attention paid to the man himself came along in the bargain; if the border between eponym and product blurred, connoting a state of mind and a way of being that were new and dark and strange and uniquely compelling--well, that didn't hurt business a bit.
-- James Kaplan, "The Triumph of Calvinism," New York, September 18, 1995
