Word of the week: Eponymous

Eponymous (adjective)
[uh’ponuhmuhs]

This comes from the Greek word “eponym” (meaning “significant name”) and is the name of the person after whom a label or place or product or invention is named. So you refer to “Ivanka Trump’s eponymous label that was dropped by the department store Nordstrom.”
