Abdel Hamid (Arabic: عبد الحميد‎) is a Muslim male given name, and in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Ḥamid. The name means "servant of the All-laudable", al-Ḥamīd being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.[1][2]

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 Hamid, Hameed, or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.

It may refer to:

Males

Females
