MAHOOD Family HistoryThis is an Irish surname which is often recorded (in Ireland) as Mahood, Hood, Hodde, Hoods Hudde, and Hoodes. It originates from the Gaelic MachUid or O'uHid, meaning "the son of Ud" or "the descendant of Ud", the latter being an ancient personal name of uncertain meaning, but possibly "time". Whether that meant that the first nameholder and chief of tribe had some connection with being able to tell the time, or perhaps was a time keeper, is not proven. Many, indeed the majority of true Gaelic surnames have a meaning associated with the original chief, and these were usually a nickname of some sort.
