The variation was popularised because Sveshnikov showed the strength of the move 8...b5. He played it already in 1967 against Adorjan, 10 years before Jamieson gave it his first try.
The first game by Jamieson with 7...a6 according to my database is from 1973, the same year Sveshnikov played it against Spassky and Karpov in the URSch.
So I it think it bears the correct name.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Carlsen's Sveshnikov or the Pelikan

In today's round at the Australian Championships, famous (and prolific) chess author IM Gary Lane and IM George Xie followed the Carlsen game in the Sveshnikov. GM Ian Rogers suggests that Black's 19...h5 may be new instead of the usual 19...d5. What do you think?
