Name Meaning

Muslim: from a personal name based on Arabic manṣūr ‘victorious’, ‘triumphant’. This word is found in compound names such as Manṣūr-ud-Dīn ‘victorious in religion’. The second of the Abbasid khalifs was Al-Manṣūr Abu-Ja῾far ( c. 712–75 ), who built the city of Baghdad in 762 and is considered the real founder of the Abbasid khalifate.
