Mansard got me, but I figured 4/5 was good enough. Thanks for the title hint!!

Orville Redenbacher was born in 1924, developed a better popcorn and guess what? Named it after himself. Then sold right to Hunt/wesson.

i didnt know who the majority of the people were

If he named it after himself, then it was named after him, right?

*it being the popcorn

I was thinking "Caesar Salad", which is named after a Tijuana restaurateur who was named after Julius Caesar, rather than being direct.

If Orville Redenbacher popcorn doesn't count because Orville named it himself, then that nixes Julius Caesar as well. But July is an established word, and a brand isn't quite the same thing.
