Re: Yiddish surnames related to 'Morrison' #ukraine #names

If the name isn't "son of Morris," it could be Morozov or Morosoff (which actually means frost).  

A website I looked at suggested Moryson and Moritsan as possible alternatives, indicating that these surnames are found in Poland and Ukraine, respectively.  I don't know whether that's true.
