Gender: M Meaning of Morrissey: "descendant of Muiris" Origin of Morrissey: Irish

When British rocker Steven Patrick Morrissey decided to use his last name alone, it became a viable option for baby namers, a lot cooler than Morris or Maurice, with the nice three-syllable lilt of of such other Irish surnames as Finnegan and Flanagan. It can also be spelled Morrisey.

Morrison is a related possibility, also with musical ties, to Irish singer-songwriter Van (born George Ivan).
