"swift to the plunder"

Mahershala Origin and Meaning

The name Mahershala is boy's name meaning "swift to the plunder".
Actor Mahershala Ali single-handedly put this Biblical name on the map. If you think it's difficult to pronounce and spell, consider that it's short for Maher-shalal-hash-baz, the longest name in the Bible which Ali actually used in its entirety as his stage name until 2010.
