Prolific Name-Sources

I had never heard of Haskell Curry before I read the preface to SICP just now, but it occurs to me that his distinction of having each of his names (first and last) turned into a term used in the discipline he studied (Haskell the programming language and Curry the operation) is sort of like how Glenn Seaborg, working at LBL, could have a letter addressed to him using element names (seaborgium / lawrencium berkelium / californium / americium.)

Who else can you think of that falls into this admittedly fuzzy-edged bucket?
