Maurice (name)Maurice is a traditionally masculine given name, also used as a surname. It originates as a French name derived from the Latin ''Mauritius'' or ''Mauricius'' and was subsequently used in other languages. Its popularity is due to Mauritius, a saint of the Theban Legion (died 287). ''Mauritius'' is otherwise attested as a given name of the Roman Empire period, in origin meaning "one from Mauritania", i.e. "the Moor".
Forms in other languages include: Spanish Mauricio, Portuguese Maurício, Italian Maurizio, Dutch Maurits, Greek Μαυρίκιος (Mavrikios), Russian Маврикий (Mavrikiy), German Moritz, English Morris. Provided by Wikipedia
