Wordsmith.org Forums (Old) Weekly themes. (have been consolidated into a single forum above) Eponyms or words derived from people's names. Am I a living eponym?
#207524 10/05/12 02:19 AM OP My story, short form, can be found at www.imzilch.com titled zilch.
Here is more about the etymology of zilch:
It is stated that "Zilch is an actual German surname of Slavic origin".
That's great,I agree with your thought.All things are difficult before they are easy.
Living without an aim is like sailing without a compass.

This is an example of an eponym. It is also rhyming slang - Mae West = Vest
Mae West [mā' wĕst'] – “a type of inflatable life jacket.” Named for buxom U.S. film star Mae West (1892-1980).
