Just looked at a blog post on a Timurid army and wondered:
which are the DBX army lists that are named after a person?

Second thought: I wish I had a DBX army list named after me. :)

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut27 Apr 2016 9:07 p.m. PST

Hussites. Cyropaedic Persians. Seleucids.

Just off the top of my head.

Whirlwind27 Apr 2016 10:11 p.m. PST

Marian and Polybian Romans?

Whirlwind27 Apr 2016 10:21 p.m. PST

and while I think on it, Camillan Roman and Alexandrian. The Pyrric army. And Abbasid and Ummayyid Arabs. Konstantinian and Maurikian Byzantine. Mithradatic.

From DBR, Maximilian Imperial. Elizabethan English. Montrose Royalist. Gustavian Swedish. Vasa Swedish. Something I can't quite remember about Poles beginning with 'J'. Williamites. I'm sure there are more, I don't know the DBR lists that well.

Alexandrian Macedon & Imperial, Lysimachid, Attalid Pergamene. Carolingian Frankish. Sargonid Assyrian

A few that may be a person's name that became a dynastic label that I'm not sure of.
