MAMOOD (محمود).  A variant form of Arabic Mohammed (q.v.), meaning "praiseworthy."  Also spelled Mahmood, Mahmoud, and Mahmud.  And see Mahomet, and Muhammad.

In a Persian History of Hindoostan it is related of Mamood I. that he enjoyed through his life uninterrupted prosperity, and attained to riches and power, which made it exceedingly painful for him to die and relinquish them. Knowing himself to be dying, two days before his death he directed that all the sacks of gold and caskets of precious stones which were in the treasury should be placed before him; when he beheld them, as with regret he wept, ordering them to be carried back to the treasury.  He commanded the day following a review of his army, his elephants, camels, horses, and chariots; with which having feasted his eyes for some time from his travelling throne, he again burst into tears and retired in grief to his palace. (Sacred Poetry, Edmeston, 1848).
