Mahmud
GenderMale
Origin
Word/NameArabic
Meaning"The praised one", "Worthy of reverence", and "Laudable or commendable".

Mahmud (also spelled Mahmood, Mahmoud, Mahmut, Mehmood, or Mehmud) is the main transliteration of the Arabic given name (Arabic: محمود, Maḥmūd) that comes from the Arabic triconsonantal root of Ḥ-M-D "Praise".

Despite sharing the same triconsonantal root, this name is distinct from the name Muhammad. One of the Islamic prophet Muhammad's many names is Mahmud.[source?]

The name is common in most parts of the Islamic world; it is used as a given name for males, while the variant Mahmuda is given to females.[source?]
