Fictional name from Swahili
"demon of war"

Vitani Origin and Meaning

The name Vitani is a girl's name meaning "demon of war".

The name of one of the antagonists in the 1998 Lion King sequel Simba's Pride. The character was originally named Shetani, which means "devil" in Swahili, but this name was later combined with Swahili vita "war" to create the portmanteau name Vitani.

If you love the sound but were hoping for a more positive meaning, the name could also be seen as an elaboration on Latin Vita, meaning "life".
