Afaik it is not a user preference, and instead Larry has explained

to the best of my understanding "Perl" is the correct form when
referring to the language. "perl" is the correct form when referring
to an implementation of Perl, such as the standard perl executable. (I
wish i could say there as a non-standard perl executable as well,
