Are we at a point where there should be put out a vote for which name to use? There are several
good ones, and a few not so good... not judging however :D

I agree with Guillaume: MVP sounds "Minimal Viable Product" in my head :) Anoter option: VIP

Although there seems to be a lot of disagreement about the name, everyone seems to be in favor
of the idea. What is the next step, Paul?

You're all missing the obvious "Groovy GR8" :-)

My own few cents, too:

Groovy Star, Groovy Champion, Groovy MVP all have their pros and cons. I would suggest something
along the lines of Groovy Exceptional Community Member (Groovy ECM) or Groovy Distinguished
Community Member (Groovy DCM). New acronym, professional enough, focusing on the overall community
and not only the language per se.

I have never heard "MVP" =  "Minimum Viable Product", so I doubt this would pose a problem.
Also do you suggest that people would actually read "Groovy has announced its Minimum Viable
Products of 2018" ?
STAR has 129 meanings as an acronym, btw, according to https://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/STAR

For me, MVP sounds too much like Minimum Viable Product :

Following the sports analogy, what about

"Groovy MVPs"

?

Any game can have Most Valuable Players (even if only one is typically crowned in the US),
and I think "Groovy announced its 2018 MVPs" has a nice ring to it.

Cheers,

I disagree with MG.

A star is an object that shines, and in this case shines light on the Groovy language and
ecosystem. Hence I think the name is both professional, and since it can be directly linked
to the star in the Groovy logo I think it makes perfect sense. In sports you also have star
players and in music (and Java) you have rock stars. That you can find examples that relates
to games on Nintendo does not make a valid point IMO. The "All Stars" just makes it so much
better - as that's what Paul, Jochen and others are .

My few cents worth.

+1up on Groovy Stars.

"Get a life" ;-)

But seriously, all the people one-upping "Groovy Stars" - consider whether that name really
sends the right professional message with regards to Groovy ? I am convinced it does not.
Managers who might decide whether Groovy can be used in a project are typically conservative
and sensitive to those things, and they do not normally follow nerd humor... (next suggestion
I see coming along the Stars-crossed-line, is to call Paul and Jochen "Groovy All Stars")

As another example, it looks like "Pokemon Stars" on the Nintendo Switch might become a reality:

Hi Paul,

     “Groovy Champions” make people associate it with "Java Champions"
easily. As for "Groovy Stars", it is interesting but let me associate "Song
Stars" and "Kungfu Stars" easily... I wish other people would not associate
as I do...

      Similarly, many years ago some one suggested to name current "Grape"
as "Groovy Baby", the latter is interesting but not formal...

      To sum up, +1 to “Groovy Champions”.

Cheers,
Daniel.Sun
