Survivor is obtained from the verb 'survive'. The word has its origin in Latin and is taken from the word supervivere to live. It was adapted as sourvivre by Old French. Middle English modified it as surviven. The word survivor is a noun. A person who survives or outlives someone else is termed as a survivor. It means he has stayed alive or existed. For example: he was recognized as a survivor of 15o years.

One who endures all kinds of hardships and traumas is termed as a survivor. Such a person comes through the affliction as a winner. For example: the survivors of the flood were provided with food. Such trying conditions may just be restricted to natural forces; it is also applicable to business spheres or common hardships. Any animal survives bad conditions of weather and food is called survivor.
