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]
