Ramanujan (name)

Ramanuja or Ramanujan or Ramanujam is a Tamil and Malayalam name literally meaning 'The younger brother of Rama' referring to Lakshmana[citation needed]. The name however is rarely used by Malayalis themselves nowadays and has come to be known as a common name used by the Tamil Iyengar community[citation needed]. The most famous personalities with this name are the 11th century philosopher Ramanuja and the Malayali poet Ramanujan Ezhuthachan. Ramanujan is also the name for Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887–1920), an Indian mathematician who is considered by many to be one of the most talented mathematicians in history.
