  • I think we could model this in the other direction, and have the item for the era point to the ruler using named after (P138). --Yair rand (talk) 17:15, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
IMHO named after (P138) is used to indicate where the name itself comes from. For example, the era name "Heisei" (平成) is actually named after "nai hei gai sei" (内), a phrase from Records of the Grand Historian (Q272530), not Emperor Akihito (Q37979) himself. In a somewhat similar sense, I.K. Bonset (Q1894655) is named after a Dutch pharse "Ik ben zot", not the person Theo van Doesburg (Q160422).--Stevenliuyi (talk) 21:19, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
