The name Mumbai is an eponym, etymologically derived from Mumba or Maha-Amba? the name of the Hindu goddess Mumbadevi, and Aai ? mother in Marathi. Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the capital of the state of Maharashtra, the most populous city of India, and by some measures the most populous city in the world with an estimated population of about 18 million (as of 2006).
