LiveScript (Product)

This was the original name for JavaScript when it was first introduced by Netscape Communications.

Maybe 'LiveScript' wouldn't have caught on and become so popular but now people routinely confuse it with Java. Even more so now that interpreters for JavaScript are available written in Java and some server-side application tools allow you to write Java code but run it in a script interpreter. That would be Java script not JavaScript.
