Hindi / Sanskrit: Vijay Origin

Hey all,
My name is Vijay. I want to know the origin of my name. I searched in Google. But it just shows that the name was adapted from Mahabharata. And it means Victory in Conquest. But I want to know how it came into being, where it originated and how it reached the Indian soil.

Did it originate in India? Or was it borrowed from somewhere?

Thanks for any help guys. :)
  • Originally, it is a Sanskrit word. The root verb is [जि] 1st conjugation ParasmaiPada [जयति] meaning To conquer When prefix [वि] is attached to it, it Pada chages to Atmanepada [विजयते] meaning To win / Be victorious विजय is a noun derived from it meaning "Victory".
