Derived from Arabic مَأْمُور (ma'mur) meaning "officer, magistrate, judge". Some sources claim that the use of this word as a given name was inspired by ﺍﻟْﺒَﻴْﺖِ ﺍﻟْﻤَﻌْﻤُﻮﺭِ (al-Bayt al-Ma'mur) or (al-Bait ul-Ma'mur), the name of a celestial mosque located directly above the Kaaba, which the prophet Muhammad saw during his ascent into heaven. The mosque's name literally means "the much-frequented house" in Arabic.
