- Eponymous

The word eponymous was originally used to denote persons whose names were reputed to have been used to form a place-name. For example, Brutus was considered to have been the founder of Britain. Students of literature may wish to refer to an 'eponymous novel' (or other text type) they are reading, such as Madame Bovary.
