Over the years, students, faculty and alumni have demonstrated their loyalty toward the University by bestowing Princeton's name on their discoveries and inventions. Examples come from the natural world, man-made creations, the heavens, fashion and more.
Some things named after Princeton include:
- USS Princeton, commissioned in 1843

- Pteygotus Princetonii, a Devonian fossil fish discovered in 1933 on Beartooth Butte, Wyoming
- The "Princeton," a style of haircut that came into fashion in the 1950s. The cut is very short around the sides and just long enough on top to allow a part.
