Abdul Majid (Arabic: عبد المجيد ‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) is a Muslim male given name and, in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Majid. The name means "servant of the All-glorious", Al-Majīd being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.<ref name=ahmed>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref><ref name=rahman>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref>

The letter a of the al- is unstressed, and can be transliterated by almost any vowel, often by e. So the first part can appear as Abdel, Abdul or Abd-al. The second part may appear as Majid, Majeed, Mecid (Turkish), Magid (Egyptian) or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.

There is a distinct but closely related name, Abdul Maajid (Arabic: عبد الماجد ‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}), with a similar meaning, formed on the Qur'anic name Al-Mājid. The two names are difficult to distinguish in transliteration, and some of the names below are instance of the latter one.
