From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Suresh (sureša) is a Sanskrit word which means "Ruler of Gods"; from surya ‘god’ + īša ‘lord’, which is an epithet of the god Indra.

It is commonly used as[citation needed] a synonym for the Hindu God Vishnu. It may also refer to Devendra or Shiva depending on which branch of Hinduism.

Its etymology is a contraction of sur + esh: sur means god, esh means king. So Suresh means king of the gods. Suresh also means the planet Sun. Suresh is a frequently used name for Hindu male children. It is a popular first name in India and a common family name in North America and the Caribbean. Variations of this name in Latin America include Sureza, Sureze, Cires and Cirez.[citation needed] Several of these examples are found on the South-Eastern region of the Dominican Republic (La Romana, San Pedro de Macoris, Boca Chica, etc.)
