Funadhoo (Dhivehi: ފުނަދޫ) is one of the inhabited islands of the Shaviyani Atoll administrative division and geographically part of the Miladhummadulhu Atoll in the Maldives.
Its the central, capital district of Shaviyani Atoll, from 2011 by the order of the Majestrate Court of Shaviyani Atoll, after it has been changed to Sh. Milandhoo in 2009 by the government. It was the capital of Shaviyani Atoll till 26 October 2009.
Funadhoo is a very common Maldivian place name and is derived from the Dhivehi name for the tree Calophyllum inophyllum (or Funa) which grows on the shores of some islands.
