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

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

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

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