Hamid refers to two different but related Arabic given names, both of which come from the Arabic triconsonantal root of Ḥ-M-D (ِِح-م-د):

  1. Ḥāmed (Arabic: حَامِد ḥāmid) also spelled Haamed, Hamid or Hamed, and in Turkish Hamit; it means "Lauder" or "one who praises".[1][2]
  2. Ḥamīd (Arabic: حَمِيد ḥamīd) also spelled Hamid, or Hameed, in Turkish is Hamit, and in Azeri is Həmid or Һәмид; it means "lauded" or "praiseworthy".

Both names is also one of the names of Islamic Prophet Muhammad.
