This is a list of legislation with popular names (of people), typically the member of Parliament/Congress responsible for it or a law named for a person of noterity that prompted enactment of the legislation.;[1][2] Popular names are also known as short titles in the United Kingdom.[citation needed] Some of these Acts acquired their names because short titles were not used, and some now have different short titles. Popular names are generally informal (such as Megan's law) but may reflect the official short title of the legislation.
