Abdul Latif (Arabic: عبد اللطيف ‎) is a Muslim male given name and, in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Latif. The name means "servant of the All-gentle", Al-Latīf being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.

The letter a of the al- is unstressed, and can be transliterated by almost any vowel, often by e. So the first part can appear as Abdel, Abdul or Abd-al. The second part may appear as Latif, Lateef or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.
