... The Moghul, Persian, and Afghan
Emperors have freely scattered their names over Northern India. Thus
there are several places called Akbarpur, by which the name of Akbar is
commemorated directly, and also indirectly by such names as Jelalalbad (Jalálábád)

having gone by the name of Jalál-ud-dín, the "glory of
the faith." (Names and Their Histories, Taylor, 1898)
