As I know a character after which a book is named is an eponymous character,is there a particular word for a symbol after which a book is named? If there is such a word, The Scarlet letter in Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, the Mockingbird in Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and the Pearl in Steinbeck's The Pearl would fit in the category. Thank you for your help!

    Other than the word "symbol," I can't think of anything.
