because they kind of share the same syntax so the person who created js named it that way

initially it's name was "Mosha". then changed to "Live Script". since when this technology introduced java was also very demanding.. so the creators finally named it "JavaScript" on the name of JAVA.. to become as famous as java was( Even it is).. and JavaScript is one of the most famous scripting language...

And they are different in syntax. ex: js: document.write("text") java: System.out.println("text") Note: Google it first before you ask it.
