Whonamedit? is an online English-language dictionary of medical eponyms and the people associated with their identification.[1] Though it is a dictionary, many eponyms and persons are presented in extensive articles with comprehensive bibliographies.[1] The dictionary is hosted in Norway and was developed by medical historian Ole Daniel Enersen.[2]
