if I'd got a mathematical object named after me before I double-barrelled my surname, maths would've become a little bit more case-sensitive than before ("Perfect doodad" ≠ "perfect doodad")

Are there any objects named after similarly surnamed people? Like, a Normal subgroup?


@christianp Oh and finally,

I guess a good place to find such names are at MGP. I found this person by an easy search:

His name is Russel Prime.
