Why Java is called Java?

Why Java is called Java?

Very interesting question “why java is called java?” isn’t it?
When I was attending the class of Java, we are asked by the teacher. Why Java is called java? We don’t have answer to this question. Later the teacher explain us that:-
Once they were deciding on what to call it. They were at a coffee shop drinking coffee, and somehow they thought of naming it java, which is another word for coffee. As coffee from JAVA island, Indonesia is so famous that sometimes coffee is itself called Java in US slang, the name was a good option for a cool and attractive name.
Note: - Java was originally named Oak, but was changed to Java, in hopes of drawing more interest to the new language.

This article explains how Java got it’s name:
