Meaning:Savior; Crawling mountain
It’s a bit of a cliché to say that your little cherub is God’s gift, but with a name like Moise, that may not be too far from the truth! The intrigue of this moniker’s diverse roots is matched only by its delightful and distinctive sound. The Hebrew version is a variant of Moses and means “savior,” while its Native American counterpart, from the Salish language family, is defined as “crawling mountain.”
