The other names of some of the areas constituting Rajajinagar are Subramanyanagara, Kethmaranahalli, Nagapura, Shivanahalli or Shivanagara, Manjunathanagara, Mariyappanapalya, Prakashnagara, Srirampuram, etc. A four-lane grade separator makes it easy for vehicular traffic to move out of Rajajinagar towards Okalipuram.

The area to the west of Chord Road was considered to be a part of Rajajinagar, but most maps today show that area as a part of Basaveshwaranagar. Chord Road is one of the longest roads in Bangalore connecting Yeswanthpur through Mahalakshmi Layout, Rajajinagar, Vijaynagar, R. P. C. Layout and Attiguppe to Mysore Road - about 8 kilometres in length.

Rajajinagar was named after C. Rajagopalachari - Rajaji, for short - the great freedom fighter from Tamil Nadu, who was also the first non-British or "native" Governor-General of India.
