Meaning & History

From Bengali বাংলাদেশ (Bangladeś) meaning "land of the Bengalis", from the name of the Bengali people and Sanskrit देश (deśá) meaning "country, kingdom, land, state". The ethnic name is derived from Sanskrit वङ्ग (vaṅga) of uncertain meaning, possibly from the name of an ancient kingdom in the Indian subcontinent or of Dravidian origin. This is the name of a country in South Asia.
