Ada beberapa teori asal usul bandar Hyderabad ini. Dikatakan pengasas bandar ini ialah Muhammad Quli yang jatuh cinta dan berkahwin dengan seorang wanita dari Banjara bernama Bhagamathi. Selepas memeluk Islam, wanita itu dinamakan Hyder Mahal . 'Abad' bermaksud bandar. Jadi Hyderabad bermaksud bandar Hyder.
