From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Mehmood)
Meaning"The praised one", "Worthy of reverence", and "Laudable or commendable".

Mahmud (also spelled Mahmood, Mahmoud, Mahmut, Mehmood, Mahmoed 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". The pronunciation of the name is [ mah-mood ]. [1]

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.[2]

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?]This is a unique name (not in the top 1000 newborn names in the US in 2021).[3]
