Mahmud

Mahmud is the primary 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.

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.
