Etymology of the name MOSKHOI.
Meaning of the baby name MOSKHOI.

  

MOSKHOI.  Greek form of biblical Meshech (Hebrew Meshek), possibly meaning either "possessor" or "one who runs about." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

    It is probable that the Moskhoi of Herodotus represented that portion of the descendants of Meshech which found a refuge in the "Moskhic mountains," when driven from the plains of Cappadocia by stronger races; and the Tibarenoi that portion of the descendants of Tubal which contrived under similar pressure to retain their ancient name and a kind of rude independence in the northern part of the same mountain district.  The Moskhoi who submitted may have formed the subject population of Cappadocia, and the Surioi, whom Herodutus (1. 72) recognized as the "Kappadokai," may have been the ruling race of the district... (Origines Celticae, Guest, 1883)
