In the article Piet Verdriet references, when it discusses the origin of Java, there's a footnote (#5) that links to an entry in Jonathan Schwartz's blog. (Jonathan is the CEO of Sun; the entry was made when Sun changed its stock symbol to JAVA.) In that entry is an e-mail from James Gosling (Java's creator) that details the story of Java's name.
