EtymologyEdit

From Old East Slavic Москъвь/Московь(Moskŭvĭ/Moskovĭ), originally referring to the river, probably from Proto-Slavic *mosky of unknown origin. Perhaps related to Czech moskva(raw bread), Slovak mozga(puddle), Polish Mozgawa, and more distantly Lithuanian mazgóti(to wash, rinse), Sanskrit मज्जति(majjati, to sink), Latin mergō(to dive). May be connected to Finnish Masku.[1]
