Variant of "Jagannath," a name for the Hindu deity Krishna. "Juggernaut" is likely a British mispronunciation.
Today, though, a "juggernaut" is generally a force beyond mortal control.
Hapless mortal: "What hit me?"
A better name for Ms. Hilton's newest book? ^^'
Say "heirhead" once out loud. Got it? Good.
"Hello" and "goodbye" in India. Like "aloha," but said while clasping both hands (like in prayer, I guess) in front of you.
A slightly more formal variant is "namaskar."
Going in: "Namaste."
Going out: "Namaste."
