Show Us What You've Got, Einstein
An eponym is a word derived from a famous name (get the title of the quiz yet?).
With clues about the word's origin, followed by a definition, can you identify the eponym in question?  (Still don't get it?)

Here is an example:
After a Greek lawmaker who came up with the country's written code ... an adjective for harshness (and an eponymous description for a sinister character from Harry Potter).
Answer:  Draconian

And another, for those who still aren't putting the title/game together:
After a German-born physicist who was known to be a genius ... slang nickname given to those who are (or believe themselves to be) of superior intellect.
Answer:  Einstein

Let's see how this goes (probably terribly, but whatever, do it anyway).  I'll post the correct answers ... eventually.

I'm sorry, a plump or full-bodied woman is NOT a BLT.  But try again, it's not too late!

For #1 I'll guess:   Clinton
