"The name 'Mongol' appears to be directly derived from the name Magog. For example, in India Mongol became Moghul and a large part of China was known as Mangi when Europeans first visited it. The Arabs called the Scythian tribes of Tartary Ya'jūj and Ma'jūj (Arabic: يأجوج و مأجوج‎) which means 'Gog and Magog' and the Great Wall of China as 'the wall of Magog' (Arabic: حائط الماجوج, Haa'it al-Ma'jūj). In the 13th century AD, Marco Polo, the Venetian traveler to the Orient, knew that the Mongols were descendants of Magog. He further understood the names of 'Ung and Mungu' in China to be 'Gog and Magog.' The descendants of Magog migrated via southern Russia to their current homeland, leaving behind such place-names as: Moğolistan, the Mugodzhar Hills, and the Mogoltau Mountains. Among the people of Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, central and much of northern and southern China, Korea, and Japan are descended from Magog. China also includes some descendants of Gomer and Javan. There are just over a billion people in China today. It is no wonder that the name of their ancestor, Japheth, means 'expansion', implying a large or expanding race of people. Other peoples descended from Magog include the Aleuts and Inuits (whose facial physiognomy is very similar to the Chinese), and the Samoyeds (Nentsi) who, although having adopted a Finnic language, are Mongoloid by race. Many American Indians also descend from Magog. We also find the Maghs, the town of Magok, Mogadok Mountain, the Mogaung river in Myanmar (Burma) and a tribe known as the Magars in Nepal."
