Sorry, you lost this one.

Sorry, but what do stars have to do with it? That's like saying DuckDuckGo should be allowed to rename itself as Google if they become more popular than Google. https://github.com/caolan/async had zero stars (i.e. didn't exist) back when I released async.js.

I'm just saying you're going to have a hard time convincing everyone that your project is the "async" JavaScript library. I presume you don't plan on suing them for trademark infringement.

It's annoying (it's happened to me too) but I don't think there's much you can do about it. Especially when the name is incredibly generic.
