Etymology[edit]

Most scholars accept a derivation from Middle Persian [script needed] (bag-dād, given by god), from Old Persian 𐏎𐎭𐎠𐎫 (bagadāta); compare Avestan 𐬀𐬙𐬁𐬛𐬋𐬕𐬀𐬠(baġō-dāta). Other origins have been suggested, and if the place name can be identified with Akkadian 𒄷𒁕𒁺 (ḫu-da-du; bag-da-du /Ḫudadu; Bagdadu/, literally location characterized with pits, cavities, crevices, deep trenches, or irrigation canals), it may be of much older provenance than Old Persian.
