"Khushab" is a combination of two Persian words: khush (Persian: خُوش), meaning "sweet or tasty", and aab (Persian: آب), meaning "water". A common belief is that the Persians from the west first used the word khush-aab in admiration of the sweet and tasty water found in the historical city situated on the bank of Jhelum River. In time the city became known as Khushab.
