Ajit, variously spelled Ajith, Agith, Ajay, Aje or Ajeet (Sanskrit: अजित ajita) is a common male given name. It is used in its various forms throughout India and also in Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
The name is derived from Sanskrit, where its primary meaning is "invincible", "irresistible", "unsurpassed". The literal meaning is "unconquered", from the prefix a- "not", and jita "conquered". It has variously been used to refer to a number of mythological figures, including Shiva and Vishnu in Hinduism, Maitreya in Buddhism and the second of the Arhats in Jainism among others.
