Maruti, is this the name of Lord Hanuman or his mother Or both?

  • I have heard so many times that Maruti is the other name of Lord Hanuman. Also heard that Maruti Nandan (The son of Maruti)

    Hey dukh bhanjan Maruti nandan Sunlo meri pukar..

    Which one is correct? Or Lord Hanuman is named as though his mother is Maruti?

  • Maruti is the name of Hanuman and not of his mother.

    In the line

    Hey dukh bhanjan Maruti nandan Sunlo meri pukar..

    Maruti nandan means child Maruti (like you would call someone child 'Name', young 'Name', adult 'Name' or old 'Name' replacing Name with anyone's name in this case Maruti) and not child of Maruti.

    My sanskrit is... what it is, so don't blame me! Maruti is a locative of Marut? Marut is the storm god, so Maruti is "Who is born of Marut", "of Marut"? No?
