Explanation: "Sanjjev", the masculine form and "sanjeevini", the faminine form in Sanskrit-both mean "life giving". The herb brought by Hanuman which saved Lakshman is called "sanjeevini" since it revived Lakshman's life and hence proved to be "life giving" or "life saving".
Sanjeev is a Sanskrit word, though used as a proper name by Tamils and other non-sanskrit speaking peoples.
