Wipro : Name of this company is the acronym of Western India Oil Products (i.e., the company's original business of cooking oil).
Apple : Steve Jobs gave this name to the compnay as he was fond of music on Apple Records, which was quiet, popular with Beatles.
Google: Page and Brin, the founders of Google, originally nicknamed their search engine "BackRub", because the system checked backlinks to estimate the importance of a site.
Eventually, they changed the name to Google, originating from a misspelling of the word "googol",the number one followed by one hundred zeros, which was picked to signify that the search engine wants to provide large quantities of information for people.

According to Steve Jobs, Apple was so named because Jobs was coming back from an apple farm, and he was on a fruitarian diet. He thought the name was "fun, spirited and not intimidating"

Wipro: From Western India Palm Refined Oil Ltd Wipro Technologies. The company started as a modest Vanaspati and laundry soap producer and is now also an IT services giant.

Hotmail: Founder Jack Smith got the idea of accessing e-mail via the web from a computer anywhere in the world. When Sabeer Bhatia came up with the business plan for the mail service he tried all kinds of names ending in 'mail' and finally settled for Hotmail as it included the letters "HTML" the markup language used to write web pages. It was initially referred to as HoTMaiL with selective upper casing
