Kamil is a name used in a number of languages.

Kamil (Polish: [ˈkamil]) is a Polish, Czech, and Slovak given name, equivalent to the Italian Camillo, Spanish/Portuguese Camilo and French Camille. It is derived from Camillus,[1] a Roman family name, which is sometimes claimed to mean "attendant at a religious service" in Latin, but may actually be of unknown Etruscan origin. The female version is Kamila, equivalent to English Camilla or Camila.

Kamil is also a Turkish name, with the female version Kamile. These names were common during Ottoman Empire and are not as common in Turkey today.

Kamil (كامل and كميل) is also an Arabic name, sometimes used as an adjective, more usually transliterated as Kamel and Kameel which can be translated as "perfect" or "the Perfect One". It is also used in Urdu, Persian and Sindhi meaning "complete". In Islamic theology, al-Insān al-Kāmil (Arabic: اَلإِنْسَانِ الكَامِلْ, Turkish: İnsan-ı Kâmil, Persian: انسانِ کامل), is a term used as an honorific title to describe Muhammad. It is an Arabic phrase meaning "the person who has reached perfection".
