Etymology of the
Meaning of the baby name MASOOD.
The same as Arabic Masud
(q.v.), meaning "chance."
Amongst the numerous officers
and servants in the fortress, Zorawer had become intimate with one only,
a young man named Masood, who was the general's own page.
As he was one day walking on the battlements with this youth he observed
a female figure, whose form was symmetry itself, cross the courtyard of
the castle. In one hand she bore a guitar, and upon the other was
perched a milk-white dove.
"Who can that angel be, Masood?"
enquired the anxious Zorawer.
"That lady," replied the page, "is our
noble master's daughter."
"And her name?" asked Zorawer.
"She is exquisitely beautiful, Masood."
