Name Meaning

English and Scottish: from Maurice, an Old French personal name introduced to Britain by the Normans. It is derived from Latin Mauritius, a derivative of Maurus (see Moore ). This was the name of several early Christian saints. In some cases it may be a nickname of the same derivation for someone with a swarthy complexion.

Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Muirghis, a variant of Ó Muirgheasa (see Morrissey ).

Welsh: Anglicized form of the personal name Meurig (from Latin Mauritius), which was gradually superseded in Wales by Morus, Morys, a derivative of the Anglo-Norman French form of the name (see 1 above).
