Awful Words Named After Real People

NERD ALERT... I love knowing these things. These are words that we use every day that came from real people. Highlights...

  • Tawdry named for St. Audrey who wore audacious necklaces
  • Draconian came from lawyer who wanted lazy put to death
  • General Henry Shrapnel built more deadly cannonballs
