The name Narayana is a Sanskrit tatpurusha compound of nara ("human, man") and ayana ("eternal, without ending").
Narayana, according to this etymology, is the one who moves in the infinite waters and is also the water itself.
Another interpretation of the word Narayana sees Nara meaning "human" and Ayana as "direction/goal". Hence Narayana refers to the "direction of a human".
Narayan is an important Sanskrit name for Vishnu.
