-ovich is a Russian patronymic ending, spelled variously in English. It
means the son of whatever. Mirom, I would guess, like Marum is an
acronym for Rabbi Meir of Rothenburg. So some ancestor used the name
Marum (like I have in my family) after this great rabbi of the middle
ages and his son was Abraham (or whatever) Miromovich and the family
used the patronymic for a family name.
