Who coined the term "turban"?





koolbluez
I was travelling on a train, when I spotted a punjabi in a turban. Suddenly a question arised in my mind, Who said the word turban for the first time?

A wikipedia search gave me the closest result:
The turban (Arabic عمامة; ‘imamah, Turkish tülbent, Persian دلبنت; dulband) is a headdress, of obscure Oriental origin, consisting of a long scarf wound round the head or an inner hat.

But does anybody have an idea where this word originated? Who actually said it for the first time?

Anyone could throw some light !!!

It came to me in one of my deepest meditations, about 4000 years ago, I think.

Its a hard life being stuck in the middle of the desert and surviving on tiny amounts of water. Sometimes I go a little crazy, you know?

Get a turban for your head, it will help with the crazyness.
