The full name of the new Java 11 certification is Oracle Certified Professional: Java SE 11 Developer. So, they have now moved from Java Programmer to Java Developer. I am wondering what would good acronyms to refer to both the parts this certification - OCPJD 11 1/2? OCPJ11D-1/2? OCPJD-1/2?

Any thoughts?

I think it is OCP. Because it is a professional level cert and that's at the beginning of the name. OCP stands for Oracle Certified Professional. The rest is just an English name.

I've been using OCP 11 part 1 and OCP 11 part 2.

Yes, the OCP part is fine but several non-Java certs also exist under OCP, such as OCP Mysql 5.6 developer certification.
So, OCP 11 may be too ambiguous.

When the java 8 exams came out, people called them OCAJP and OCPJP. But then it started getting shortened. So I think we've gotten to OCP now. The part 1 and 2 differentiator feels like the tricky part!

Maybe:
OCP-I Java 11 and OCP-II Java 11
Or
OCPJ11D-I and OCPJ11D-II
