This name derives from the French town of Saint-Maur (Saint Maurus). This is a male given name transferred from the surname, from the Ancient Greek “amauros (ἀμαυρός)”. Saint Maurus was the first disciple of St. Benedict of Nursia (512–584). The Life recounts the long journey of St. Maurus and his companions from Italy to France, accompanied by many adventures and miracles as St. Maurus is transformed from the youthful disciple of Benedict into a powerful, miracle-working holy man in his own right.
