Definition - What does Avatar mean?

The term avatar refers to a manifestation of self in another form. An avatar is somewhat like an alter ego.

Kinkly explains Avatar

The term avatar is derived from the Sanskrit word for incarnation. The term originates from the idea that the Hindu gods are physically formless and can take on any form. The physical form they choose is called their avatar. Now, the term avatar usually refers to a person's digital representation of themselves either in a video game or online. Individuals can use avatars to play games, have cyber sex, or chat online.
