Is there a name for phenomena named after an instance of themselves?

So, for instance, The Streisand Effect is named after an example of The Streisand Effect, The Baader Meinhof phenomenon is named after an example of the Baader Meinhof phenomenon, and there have been various syndromes named after a famous person who suffered from them.

It's a kind of synecdoche, possibly. Anyone got any ideas?
