[ 3 syll. a-di-tya, ad-it-ya ] The baby boy name Aditya is pronounced as ahDIY-TYaa †. Aditya is used chiefly in the English and Indian languages, and it is derived from Sanskrit origins. The name's meaning is belonging to Aditi; sun. In Hindu mythology, Aditya means 'belonging to Aditi' in reference to the children of Aditi. In later Hinduism, Aditya is also used to refer to the sun. As a first name, it is usually given to honor the seven or eight children of Aditi. The name Adita (Indian) is the female form of Aditya.
Ditya (diminutive form) is another variant of Aditya.
