From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

Among the prophecies of the Old and New Testament, which are perverted by the fraud or ignorance of the Mussulmans, they apply to the prophet the promise of the Paraclete, or Comforter, which had been already usurped by the Montanists and Manichaeans, (Beausobre, Hist. Critique du Manicheisme, tom. i. p. 263, etc.); and the easy change of letters, Ancient Greek for Ancient Greek affords the etymology of the name of Mohammed (Maracci, tom. i. part i. p. 15 - 28.).
