Mose History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , German


The distinguished and ancient German surname Mose is derived from the German word "moos," meaning "moss." This name is given to over two hundred "flurnamen," or parcels of land, located throughout Swabia (modern Baden-Württemburg) and Bavaria, all denoting swamp areas; thus, the progenitor of the surname Mose may have been someone who hailed from one of these regions. "moos" is also an element found in the names of many German cities, such as Moosau, Moosbach, and Moosberg; in this instance, it is likely that the name was first borne by a native of one of these cities.


Early Origins of the Mose family


The surname Mose was first found in South Germany, where the ancestral home of the Mose family is thought to be located. The origins of the surname make it probable that several branches of the Mose family emerged independently during the Middle Ages. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that many of the first bearers of the name Mose were natives of one of the swamp areas known as Mose or from one of the cities with the element "moos" in its name, who had settled elsewhere, and were then referred to by the name of their hometown.
