It would be a mouthful if one transliterated all the syllabi of the name Hewlett-Packard. Fortunately, someone put some thought into it and came up with 惠普 (hui pu, pronounced hway poo) for HP.
惠 (hui) is a favor, kindness, or in terms of prices, can mean inexpensive or a good value.
普 (pu) means general or universal.
Therefore the name can mean a universal service or product that is of benefit and good value for all.
