Kutalmış is a very rare masculine Turkish given name. "Kutalmış" is composed of two words: "kut" and "almış". In Turkish, "Kut" means "life force", and/or "happiness" whereas "almış" means literally "(he/she) received", and/or "(he/she) took". Thus, "Kutalmış" means "who received happines (divine)", ""who received life force (from god)". In Turkish mythology, "Kut" also means "divine authority or power that a person (kağan) has received (blessed) from god". In this interpretation, "Kutalmış" means, "The ruler who is blessed and authorized by god to be the ruler".
