Countries Named After People

Can you guess these countries named after people? The namesakes of the countries are given, try and guess the country's name!
Has to be the name the country is known by, so "Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela" won't work.
Translated names, i.e. Hayastan for Armenia, also do not count
Both real and legendary/mythological figures are included
Names with a (?) next to it means the claim is disputed
