The name Mazarbul refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see Mazarbul (disambiguation).

Mazarbul means "written documents, records" in Khuzdul.

[edit] Etymology

The word has a probable root *ZRB, "write, inscribe".[1]

If so, it also contains a prefix ma- which perhaps denotes perfect tense, and the suffix -ul.[2]
