Named in honor of Jack Wisdom, a dynamicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Wisdom is well known for his discovery of a dynamical mechanism for the removal of minor-planet type objects from the 3:1 and other Kirkwood {see planet  (1578)} gaps via chaotic behavior, which can also deliver meteorites to the Earth. He and his colleagues have also explored the long-term stability of the solar system, the tidal evolution of planetary satellite systems and the chaotic rotation states of irregularly shaped natural satellites.
