Im doing a CryptoFamily and the heading makes no sense to me. For those who have never done one an example would be a heading that says: AT THE CARNIVAL and underneath the heading is an example of answer which in this case lists "Tunnel of Love".

The one thats confusing has the heading:

NAMED FOR FOLKS

and underneath that, the example of an answer would be "Poinsettia".
What in the hell does that even mean, is that tongue and cheek, or literal. Can anyone explain that?

According to Chambers it was named for:

Joel Roberts Poinsett (1779–1851), US Minister to Mexico

so the answers are names derived from people's names?

Damn ur good. Tell me this, one of these has an apostrophe in the answer. Is there a 2 word phrase with an apostrophe in it that you can think of at the top of your head thats named after someone? Besides Halley's Comet and that didnt work.
