Best Answer - Chosen by Asker

Rohit (Devanagari: रोहित) is a proper noun and a name given to Hindu males.

The word Rohit at its root signifies the colour red. As can be seen from the various meanings or definitions below, the colour red is implicit in each,

It is derived from Sanskrit, it means the "First rays of the sun". The early morning sunlight usually has a lot of reddish tint.
It is also said to be derived from the Sanskrit word Rohitah (रोहित:) which signifies a red coloured deer - a form which Brahma once took.
Rohit is also one of the names of the Hindu God Vishnu, when He first arrived on earth as a beautiful red fish. It appears in the Vishnu Sahasranaam (विष्णु सहस्रणाम, "1000 names of Vishnu").
Rohit also means a person who leads to growth and development of his family (a commonly held belief in Hindu families).

Rohit is a popular name for Hindu males, and is widely used in the Hindi films.

As stated above the word Rohit is associated with the colour red, and is a modification (or corruption) of the word Lohit. Loh or Lauh means red in Sanskrit. Hence Lohit ("of red") signifies or describes something that is red coloured.
