Lord Hanuman Names:108 names of God Hanuman, Baby Boy names from indian Hindu Mythology

Lord Hanuman is the symbol of devotion and dedication towards his Lord Rama. God Hanuman is considered as incarnation of Lord Shiva. Hanuman is also known as the Monkey God, who represents strength, valor, wisdom, intellect and sincere devotion. Hanuman is a powerful God who observed celibacy throughout his life. Lord Hanuman is often worshipped to attain mental peace, knowledge, strength and power.

Lord Hanuman received his name from the Sanskrit words Hanu ("jaw") and -man ("prominent"). The name thus means "one with prominent jaw”. Another theory says the name derives from the Sanskrit words Han ("killed" or "destroyed") and maana (pride); the name implies "one whose pride was destroyed". Some Jain texts mention that Hanuman spent his childhood on an island called Hanuruha, which is the origin of his name.

He is also known as Bajarang Bali. It consists of two words: Bajarang and Bali. Bajarang means with a strong iron-like body. Bali means all powerful. Other names of Lord Hanuman are Pavan-Putra (meaning son of Vayu or wind), Maruti, Kesari-nandana (son of Kesari), Anjani-putra and Anjaneya (son of Anjani). Another name for Hanuman is sankat mochan. Sankat mochan means remover of troubles.

Hanuman represents the ideal selfless devotee. He is the symbol for physical strength, perseverance and devotion. Hanuman's mother's name was Anjani, and his father was Vayu, the wind-god. Because of this he could fly like the wind and was very swift. He was born with two kundalas (earrings) in his ears.

On the palm of either hand Hanuman has the signs of a dhwaja (yellow flag) and a vajra (lightning). On his forehead is the Bhagwan Vishnu — a U-shaped marking with a dot in the middle. Over his shoulder Hanuman wears the sacred thread of Brahmins, the Janeyu. His tail curves upwards and on the end hangs a bell. He always wears either red or saffron clothes. Red is the colour of strength and saffron is the colour of sacrifice. His favorite weapon is the gada, or the mace.

In the Ramayana Lord Rama turned to Hanuman to help with his problem of finding Sita. In another story from the Ramayana Hanuman flew to Sanjeevani to get some herbs to save Lakshmana’s (Rama's brother) life. He did not know which herbs to bring back and so lifted the whole hill and flew with it to save his life.

In Hindu mythology, Hanuman is one of the few Gods not afflicted by Shani. Hanuman is the one of the deities in Hindu religion, over whom Shani could not cast his spell. Shani could not overcome Hanuman and as such people worship Hanuman to get rid of malefic effects of Shani. His main mantra is Om Sri Hanumate Namah.
