Life.com has a really big gallery of people whose names live on in dictionaries and on products, including Samuel Maverick, Rudolf Diesel, Etienne Silhouette, and Rev. Sylvester Graham. Also featured is Jules Leotard, a 19th-century French trapeze artist who lent his name to the tights. Were any of their examples new to you? Who'd they leave out?

(We've discussed our Jeopardy! Dream Boards before; "People Who Became Nouns" would be on mine. Right now my other five categories would be Wonder Years Guest Stars, Facts From 1987 Topps Baseball Cards, Presidential Nicknames, (Jed) Bartlet's Quotations, and Alma Maters of the Mildly Famous.)

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
