Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786800038, Hardcover)

This fascinating compilation of eponyms and toponyms, words derived from people and places, is filled with histories of everyday words accompanied by b&w illustrations. For example, Barbie and Ken were named after the children of the owners of Mattel Toy Company, who created the dolls in 1958.
