Eponymousness

Today’s Word of the Day (WOTD) is catchpole. The WOTD always includes a contemporary example of colloquial usage. I noticed today’s example was, in fact, someone’s name. One “Liz Catchpole.” Further, she worked for a financial institution and was commenting on the issue of personal debt. Finally, this is what a Google search on “Catchpole finance” returns (sans quotes). Note the numerous individuals who work for financial institutions. If you’re curious as to why I find this faintly amusing, click above to read the definition.
