Solanki is a clan name commonly associated with the Jats and Rajputs in India but which has also been borrowed by other communities such as the Saharias as a means of advancement by the process of sanskritisation. Other groups that use the name include the Bhils of Rajasthan, while the Gurjars have a similarly-named clan that has a myth of origin akin to that of the Rajputs.
