Where did the name Moscow come from?

There are a few hypotheses regarding the origin of this word, but only three of them are generally accepted among linguists:

  1. It is believed that the river on which the city stands had been named Moskva (Moscow) by local Finno-Ugric tribes before the city was founded. “Mosk” means “a beard” or “a cow” and “va” means “water”.
  2. According to another version, all wandering rivers were called “Moskva”. If you take a closer look, you will see that this river has many turns and curves.
  3. The third version says that the word Moskva was formed from the words “mosk” (stone) and “kov” (cover) since the city was built around a fortress.
