Moment Family History
Moment Name Meaning
English (Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire): variant of Mawman with excrescent -t and re-spelt through folk etymology as though identical with the word moment. Mawman is probably an occupational name from an unrecorded Middle English Mawman ‘servant of Maw’ (a pet form of Matthew see Maw ).
