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..[citation needed]

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, but is uncommon.[citation needed]
