I prefer "Javascript" and it looks like there were some decision to call the language in this way. What's your opinion?

There is no opinion on this matter. ECMA-262 states that it is JavaScript, and that is how it shall be.

It mentions it in this way right in the second paragraph of the intro
"ECMAScript is based on several originating technologies, the most well-known being JavaScript (Netscape) and JScript (Microsoft). The language was invented by Brendan Eich at Netscape and first appeared in that company's Navigator 2.0 browser."

The only authoritative statement on spelling in that paragraph is the spelling of ECMAScript.

If Eich calls it JavaScript, then I shall call it JavaScript. You don't tell a mother the name of her son. She knows it better than anyone else.

Well no, in this case the mother called her son "LiveScript", so they told her "No sweetie, is JavaScript, trust us"

Jokes aside, yes, on Brendan Eich's site and tweeter account he has it as "JavaScript", with an upper case "S"

And on echojs rules is this:

* Respect the case : JavaScript, not javascript or javaScript or Javascript

So yeah, I shall do it like that.
