'named after' = given the same name as someone.

It wasn't clear enough to me until I found this definition.
Name after: to give someone or something the same name as someone or something else, especially the same first name as a member of your family.
And thanks Beeesneees.

Take this scenario:
There is a man whose mother's name is Mary.
Then man had a baby girl and decided to call her Mary too, in respect for/honour of his mother (or in memory of his mother if she has died).
The baby is then said to be named after (given the same name as) the man's mother. They are both called Mary, but not just by coincidence. The youngest of the two is named Mary by her parents because that is the name of her father's mother.

It can of course be used in describing buildings/events/ places.
