I thought it was the other way around, that what would happen on Earth-2 would eventually happen to Earth-1. That's why Earth-2 had their heroes first.

The name thing came about because the elder JSA members were mature enough NOT to argue about such things with the younger JLAers.

Here's a quote from the 2 page spread that (I think) originally appeared in Adventure Comics when the JSA started their run there. It was reprinted in last year's Justice Society Vol. 1.

For just as the geography of the planets was similar, so too was their history -- save that on Earth-One, the age of heroes had begun twenty-five years later than on Earth-Two.

Their histories were similar - WW II happened in the 1940's on both Earths, for example, but the heroes appeared at different times (1940's vs 1960's). It was not 1950 on Earth 2 at the same time it was 1970 on Earth 1.
