Moses is a ♂ boy’s name.
Moses is a biblical name of Egyptian origin. Moses was drawn out of the Nile by the daughter of the Egyptian pharaoh. He demanded the pharaoh release together with his brother Aaron. That was only done after God sent ten plagues upon Egypt. Moses led the people across the Red Sea and to Mount Sinai, where he received the Ten Commandments from God.
Moses means “son” (from ancient Egyptian “msy” = son/child of or “mes” = to give birth). It is disproved that the name shall be derived from Hebrew “mashá/מָשָׁה” meaning “draw out (of the water)”.
The name Moses is ranked #7202 overall.
