Mahomond Surname History
The name "Mahomond", according to Jose Emilio Mahomond-Suaidan (1946-2009), stems from a clerical error in early 20th century France due to the switching and transliteration of a surname and a patronymic (the names involved being changed from the Arabic "Suaiden Mahmoud" to "Suaidan Mahomond" in French, the first "o" silent to replicate the drawn "h" sound in Arabic). In Arabic, patronymics often follow the last name. Malaysian finance minister Abdul Taib Mahmud is an example of this naming convention.
The family is largely based in the Americas and while individual efforts have been made on the part of second, third and fourth-generation Mahomond descendants to recover or hyphenate a variant of the original surname "Suaiden", a number of Mahomonds have simply opted to keep the name.
The name "Mahomond" is a 20th century name created through the reversal of a surname with the patronymic "Mahmoud". The spelling is based on French pronunciation.
