Panj Pyare means literally the five beloved.
The word panj is the Punjabi word for five. Pyara is the singular Punjabi word for beloved. Panj Pyare refers to the five beloved ones collectively.

The Panj Pyare are beloved by Sikhs because the tenth guru of the Sikhs Gobind Rai called to a crowd of thousands who had assembled on the day of Vaisakhi, asking for volunteers who would give him their heads. Five men came forward:

Bhai Daya Singh
Bahi Dharam Singh
Bhai Himmat Singh
Bhai Muhkam Singh
Bhai Sahib Singh
