MOHAMMED Family HistoryIn most parts of the world, the use of a single hereditary surname is a modern phenomena, in some cases only dating from after the Second World War in 1945. Many of these surnames are often based upon heroic or religious figures from history. The most prominent in this category are the surnames Mohamed, Mohammed, Mohammad, and Mahomet, all of which are associated with, or claim descent from, the Prophet Mohammed, the founder of Islam between the years 562 and 632 a.d. The name translates literally as "the praised one", and the name has been held by such as King Mohammed 11nd, the captor of Constantinople in 1453, and Mohammed Ahmed (circa 1860 - 1896), better known as "The Mahdi".
