Is it circular to say the meaning of the name "Feynman" is "the famous physicist called 'Feynman'"?

Not circular. The meaning of a symbol is the thing (in this case, the person) to which people refer when they make a certain noise which we represent by that symbol, or draw a certain squiggle picture....
