You know how, like, the name Richard means "ruler?" Well, surnames have meanings too, usually just one or two words.

I've scoured the net as well. The ONLY thing I've ever been able to find about it is that the name comes from Scotland, but I'm taking that with a grain of salt.

I've never found a baby book with the name Mosby in it, which kind of irks me. Horrible names like "Petunia" or "Tannith" will be mentioned, but not a gorgeous, unique name like Mosby?

Not that I'm bitter :)
