Siddhārtha ［悉達多］ (; Pali Siddhattha; Shiddatta): “Goal Achieved.” Another name for Shakyamuni, possibly his childhood or given name. According to tradition, Shakyamuni was so called because upon his birth the kingdom of the Shākyas became prosperous and all the wishes of his father Shuddhodana were fulfilled. Some scholars believe that it was not his actual name, but a title bestowed by later Buddhists in recognition of his having achieved the goal of enlightenment and become a Buddha. Shakyamuni is often referred to as Siddhārtha Gautama, the latter being his family name. Shakyamuni, meaning “sage of the Shākyas,” was an honorific name applied to him.
