I don’t think it stands for anything really in the tradition sense. It could be interperated as “Viva, 3rd gen” in the way that an FD is a Victor 4th gen, and a PA is a Cresta 1st gen.

Where the H, the F, and the P come from I don’t know!

And why did Bedford jump from CA to CF?

There was a prototype CB van - I think it's on Vauxpedia.

ETA - looking elsewhere on that site, it seems that the "H" in Viva model designations is a continuation from the Vauxhall H10 model. Lots on there to read, but a lot of it in very hard-to-read format, for me at least.
