Well the person who named it did not name it after himself. Its not good etiquette in science to name a new species after yourself. In this case the person who described the scorpion named it after the discoverer.

There is an ant in the rainforest called Pheidole harrisonfordi as well as a few other interesting names, but it wasn't Harrison Ford doing the naming. :D
