When a Person Becomes a Noun, Adjective or Verb!

An eponym can be used to avoid repetition in a sentence, as in, “A native of San Francisco, Wang ditched Parsons in 2004 to launch his eponymous brand [clothing], inspired by his love of nightlife” (sentence taken from a Google search). Guess what was the name of the fashion brand? “Wang” of course!
