MORA Family History

Recorded in several spellings including Mora, Morales, Mourier and Morais, this is a Spanish and Portuguese surname, of ancient Roman (Latin) origins. It derives from the word 'mora' meaning 'the blackberry', and was originally occupational for a person who farmed these fruits in ancient times. The name is also habitational and may well derive in many instances from living at one of the many places on the Iberian Peninsula called 'Mora'. Habitational surnames were given to people after they left their original homesteads and moved to a new place.
