I believe Beauty Leopard was not a sanctioned name by Geely; it was a (Google?) translation used by enthusiasts, much like "Kingbox" for Heijin'gang.
The official Anglicization was "Mybo". Chinese car veterans may please confirm (or refute; I may be wrong).

Showjet, however, is an official name, not really a translation as such but sort of a phonetic approximation. The translation of Xuanjie is something akin to "shine/dazzle around (within a given realm or boundary)".
