I've been thinking about how mathematicians come up with names for the ideas/objects they study, and how that differs from the practices of people in other fields.
It seems that almost always we do one of two things: 1) we pick a name that describes some feature of the object (sometimes not very well, e.g. flat modules, sets of second category), or 2) we name it after a person (who may or may not have studied that object).
Very rarely we name something after a place. (This is much more common in other fields.) I can think of only 3 examples:
Does anyone know of any other examples in mathematics?
