Origin unknown: some highly dubious claims for a Greek etymology: "absorber of knowledge"; as likely -much more so, in Estragon's opinion -a corruption of "Mahomet": there is ample evidence of Madiaeval mispronunciations and of the fact that Muhammad" wasn't really understood as a "prophet"; but rather as some sort of Devil worshipped by pagans.

Is this with which you both are referring to?
"The Goat of Mendes, otherwise known or called Baphomet"......whom the Templars were accused of worshipping....
