Balasubramaniam or Balasubramanian (Tamil: பாலசுப்ரமணியம்; Telugu: బాల సుబ్రహ్మణ్యం; Kannada: ಬಾಲಸುಬ್ರಹ್ಮಣ್ಯಂ) is a given name for a male South Indians. Due the South Indian tradition of using patronymic surnames it may also be a surname for males and females. Balasubramaniam is derived from the Sanskrit words balu meaning "young" and Subramaniam (itself derived from the Sanskrit words su, meaning "auspicious" and brahmanyam, translated loosely as "auspicious effulgence of the Supreme Spirit"). By extension, it refers to the Hindu god Murugan as a child or young man, the way the term Balakrishna refers to the young Krishna
