Where did the French Morua family come from? What is the French Morua family crest and coat of arms? When did the Morua family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Morua family history?

The name Morua is a nickname type of surname, derived from the Old French word "more," meaning "dark skinned," which in turn derives from the Phoenician "mauharim," meaning "eastern." This name was applied to Moors and other people with dark complexions. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Surnames derived from nicknames were quite common; they usually reflected physical characteristics or other attributes of the first person.
