"HAL-O-ROID" is a literal meaning meant to mean "Haruo droid", with "HAL-O" playing on the vowel sound of "uo" and the interchangeable nature of "l/r" in Japanese.
It is also a reference to the common use of "roid" or "loid" for "android" within vocal synthesizers, as made famous by the software "VOCALOID" (whose own name means "vocal and roid" and also a play on the interchangeable nature of "l/r").
