It is unlikely that J-K stand for the name of any particular person. The D
flip-flop is so called because it is a "data" FF. The outputs of a flip-flop
are called Q and Q-bar but no one claims that they are named after
any person. Enable inputs for latches are sometimes called the G
inputs, apparently for no particular reason. The letters J and K were
probably chosen from the sequence I, J, K, ... by eliminating the
I to avoid confusion with the numeral one.
