Pell's equation is an example of this, named after Pell because there was
already too much stuff named after Fermat...

I'm not sure how to categorize what I first learned as the Weil Conjecture
(on elliptic curves) which seems to have migrated through Shimura-Taniyama-Weil
and is now mostly called Shimura-Taniyama.
