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

Following the sports analogy, what about
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
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:

“Groovy Champions” make people associate it with
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
To sum up, +1 to “Groovy Champions”.
