Doesn't php stand for "php hypertext preprocessor"?


It was originally called Personal Home Page, but as it grew larger they decided to change it to Php Hypertext Preprocessor.


I believe it was first called "Personal Home Page" (hence PHP) but later it was renamed to "Hypertext Preprocessor"


Then wouldn't it technically stand for ((Personal home page) Hypertext Preprocessor) or PersonalhomepageHypertextPreprocessor?
It seems strange for the first P in PHP to stand for PHP.
