    My guess is that researchers found kib1a first so it got the 'a', and the 'b' was named later because researchers found it later, and those letters are representative of when they were identified, and not when they first appeared?

    That is correct. As I said either here or on the FTDNA Ireland forum, you could in theory belong to an as-yet unidentified branch of K1b1.
