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.

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.

    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
        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”.
