The etymology of Paposhnagar is that the words (Pa means foot ; posh means to wear ; nagar means town') due to footwear and leather workshops and boutiques in the 1950-1970s. After the construction of the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital this area slowly got identified with the hospital. The footwear workshops have moved to other industrial and commercial areas of Karachi. The majority of the people in this middle-class neighbourhood are Muhajirs who settled after the independence of Pakistan.
