* "Mugar" means "meeting" in "Kabyle", one of the Berber languages, as written in the email below .
* "Magars' are an indigenous group of people in Nepal. 'Magar' means 'children of Mongols', however, it is not well taken.
* MAGARS [Nepal], MAGYARS [Hungary], MUGAR [Armenia] and MOGHULS [India] appear similar. Is there any scholar who could tell more on these.

There is also a Mugar hill in the south of Algeria. The caravanserail use to
meet near this hill, hence the name.
I don't know much more about it.
You should direct to an berber (Amazigh) language specialist.
All the best,
