The surname Moskovicz is a patronymic surname formed by adding the Slavic suffix "-ovic" meaning "son of" to a transformation of the biblical Hebrew personal Moses ("Mosko" was a Polish pet form of the personal name Moses). Jews in Eastern and Central Europe only began to use fixed hereditary surnames near the end of the 18th century. Beginning in 1845 in Russia, Jewish people were compelled to choose or accept hereditary surnames. Because of the era when these names were assumed, it is highly unlikely that the name origins have to do with the place name Moscow.
