Morocco History

The full Arabic name al-Mamlaka al-Maribiyya translates to The Western Kingdom."" Al-Marib is commonly used. For historical references, medieval Arab historians and geographers used to refer to Morocco as Al-Maghrib al Aq, disambiguating it from neighboring historical regions called al-Maghrib al Awsat and al-Maghrib al Adna."

The Latinized name Morocco"" originates from medieval Latin ""Morroch,"" which referred to the name of the former Almoravid and Almohad capital, Marrakech. The Persians straightforwardly call it ""Marrakech"" while the Turks call it ""Fas"" which comes from the ancient Idrisid and Marinid capital, Fs."

The word Marrakech"" is presumably derived from the Berber word Mur-Akush, meaning Land of God."

The area of present-day Morocco has been inhabited since Neolithic times, a period when the Maghreb was less arid than it is today. Many theorists believe the Amazigh people, commonly referred to as Berbers or by their regional ethnic identity, probably arrived at roughly the same time as the inception of agriculture in the region. In the classical period, Morocco was known as Mauretania, although this should not be confused with the modern-day country of Mauritania.
