Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
The name was given to people North African / Arabic origins who resided in Europe (Moors). The name comes from the demonym of Mauritania (modern day Morocco). It originally applied to European residents who were Arabic, then it was broadened to African and Arabic Europeans, or just people with darker skin.

The German usage of this name is usually Moritz (as in Max und Moritz) although there was a prominent Nazi (Emil) and member of the SS, who's last name was Maurice. Himmler suspected him of being part Jewish.

This is a nice, smooth-sounding name that fits in with all the modern trends of the decade. I wonder why nobody I know is called this?!
