EtymologyEdit

From Latin Mōsēs, Mōȳsēs, from Ancient Greek Μωυσῆς (Mōusês), from Biblical Hebrew מֹשֶׁה(mōše). Further etymology is unclear, but it is sometimes conjectured to derive from Egyptian msj (to give birth to), a common element in Egyptian names of the form ‘[name of deity] is the one who bore him’.
