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.

Etymology[edit]

The name is derived from Sanskrit, where its primary meaning is "invincible", "irresistible", "unsurpassed".[1] 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.[1]
