Somewhere in the back of my mind is the information that 'JM' was the initials 
of Sinclair engineer John Mathieson (can't remember if that's the correct 
spelling or not).
It won't be Jochen Merz because although he probably rightly deserves the fame 
for his sterling work as a QL trader over the years, he wasn't part of the 
Sinclair company and only became known to the QL scene well after the QL was 
launched.
It's quite possible that only Sinclair staff such as Tony Tebby or Jan Jones or 
Jonathan Oakley would be able to fully answer this - the people who were 
involved in QL development and remember what was going on in the minds of the 
ROM developers and significant events in the company at the time.
Anyway, I preferred the more light hearted explanations offered here. I always 
thought that 'FB' stood for 'F*ing Bad' (that's Flaming Bad before anyone 
thinks otherwise).
