It's the Hebrew name of the valley which is prophecied in the Bible to be where the battle of Armageddon occurs. "Armageddon" means "Mount Megiddo", ie, the hill that overlooks the valley of Megiddo (or as it's now known, Jezreel).
In Hebrew letters = הר מגידו
Spelling:
Mount=הר (hei - reish)- pronounced as "har" (like in name Harry)
Megiddo = מגידו(mem-gimel-yod-dalet-vav)
