However it could also be derived from the word 'Omm Sidna' meaning 'The Mother of Our Lord' since there could have been a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.Msida was previously an old fishing village. Although it is now more urbanised, some fishermen still operate in the village.
