Maurice History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: French , Welsh


The majestic country of France is the ancestral homeland of the distinguished surname Maurice.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The name Maurice was originally derived from the early Christian given name Mauritius, which itself comes from the Phoenician word mauharim, meaning eastern.
