Meaning & History
Possibly a combination of VIGNESH and Tamil வர்ணம் (varṇam) or Malayalam വര്ണ്ണം (varṇṇaṁ) both meaning "colour", likely derived from Sanskrit वर्ण (varna) which has the same meaning. Alternatively, Vigneshwaran could derive from विघ्नेश्वर (vighneśvara) meaning "lord of obstacles" in Sanskrit, referring to GANESH's primary function in Hinduism as the master and remover of obstacles.
