What does Moolah mean?

‘Moolah’ is a slang term for ‘Money’

Moolah is simply another word for money. It’s a term that’s been used for a long time and is recognized by people of all ages. It’s believed to have appeared first in the 1930s, popular among gamblers and trendsetters in the U.S.

Today, ‘Moolah’ continues to be in use, even though there are many other slang words for money like Bread, Dough, Paper, and Scratch. The word has a fun ring to it, which might be one reason why it’s still popular.

There are a few theories about where the term ‘Moolah’ originated. Some people think it came from the Gypsy word “mol,” which means “to be worth.” Others suggest it came from the Irish term “moll oir,” translating to “pile of gold.”

A different theory points to the Sanskrit word “mulya,” pronounced Mool-ya, which means “value” or “price.” This word is used in Hindi, Marathi, and other languages in India. Interestingly, “Amulya” in these languages means “priceless.”
