The on-line Webster's Dictionary defines eponym as

"the person for whom something is
named or supposedly named"

I believe an example is "eustachian tube"

It does not mention the thing for which a person
is named or supposedly named.

Any neural system sufficiently complex to generate the axioms of
arithmetic is too complex to be understood by itself.
