Vanar (वनर्):—[from van] in [compound] for vanas (= vana).
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!).

Vanar in Hindi refers in English to:—(nm) a monkey, an ape; hence ~[ri] (nf); (a) monkeyish, like a monkey; •[sena] an army of monkeys..—vanar (वानर) is alternatively transliterated as Vānara.
