Gautam (a vrddhi patronymic of Gotama also transliterated as Gautama, Gautham or Gotama) is a name, originating in Rigvedic times. It derives from the Sanskrit words “gaḥ (गः)” meaning “bright light” and “tama (तम)” meaning “darkness”. Together they indicate a person who dispels darkness by his brilliance, such as using the light of their knowledge to dispel the gloom of ignorance.
