本田 is pronounced hon da in Japanese and ben tian in Chinese.
本 (ben) is the origin, the source, or one’s own.
田 (tian) is farmland or field.
Similar to Toyota, this company’s name is inspired by its founder Soichiro Honda.
Because Honda is a Japanese surname associated with good meanings, a Chinese person may link this name with “Japanese quality”.
