More Info:
  • Toponyms will be included if and only if they are part of someone's name. E.g. something including the name 'da Vinci' would be considered eponymous if it was in reference to Leonardo and not to the town itself.

    Only terms that are directly derived from some part of a name are counted. E.g. if a term included the name 'Backward' as a veiled reference to Robert L. Forward, then it would not be considered eponymous.
