Origin of the name MOSES.
Etymology of the name MOSES.
Meaning of the baby name MOSES.

  

MOSES.  Biblical.  An Anglicized form of Hebrew Moshe (מֹשֶׁה), meaning, "great Law-giver," or, if from the Egyptian, "saved (from the water)."

    Moses, interpreted by the Scripture as meaning drawn out of the water, belongs rather to the Egyptian than to the Hebrew language.  It probably came from the Coptic mo, water, and usha, saved; though the Hebrew, mâshâh, also presents a ready derivation:  the great Law-giver... Moses was unused by the Jews while they continued a nation, but has been very common in their dispersion,... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
