Etymology of the name MAHFUZ.
Meaning of the baby name MAHFUZ.


MAHFUZ (محفوظ, মাহফুজ).  Arabic and Hindu.  From Arabic mahfūz, meaning "defended, preserved." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1873).

    In 1736 the last great Hindu dynasty in Madura came to an end with the treacherous capture of the Queen Minakshi by Chanda Sahib.  In 1741 he was compelled to surrender Madura to the Marathas, and these in turn were driven out in 1744 by the Nizam of the Deccan, who ultimately made over the province to Anwaruddin Khan as Nawab of Arcot or the Carnatic.  The latter entrusted it to the care of his sons Muhammad Ali and Mahfuz Khan, but on his death and the accession of Muhammad Ali in 1749 Madura was placed under another son, Abdul Rahim.  In the year 1750, whilst Abdul Rahim was absent in Tinnevelly, the fort of Madura was seized by one Alam Khan, a partisan of Chanda Sahib, thus cutting off the Nawab from the province of Tinnevelly and depriving him of half his revenue. (Yusuf Khan: the Rebel Commandant, Hill, 1914)
