It's becoming more common to use "Asperger Syndrome" these days, along with all the other named conditions. The reasoning is that Dr Asperger didn't have "Asperger's" and Dr Down didn't have "Down's".

Yep, I have a new book on my shelf right now titled "Asperger Syndrome & Your Child".
Lou Gehrig did have Lou Gehrig's disease, though. Do we except him?
Yes, although I think that name's been mostly replaced by ALS these days, perhaps not enough people know who Lou Gehrig was. My favourite example of these names is Daltonism, a form of colour-blindness both suffered by and discovered by Dalton.
