The proposed Proto-Germanic root does not exist for MOOR. Its root is Proto-Celtic *MORI, and is the same root for all the Germanic cognitives, (with diverse meanings), since they are all Brythonic, except German MOOR which is borrowed from English, as is MEER from Dutch. Here it seems apparent that the zero grade Proto-Germanic lexeme *MARI was naturally incorporated upon invasion from the Germanic races; and then the meaning of the Celtic remnant, MOR (sea) changed through (marsh) to (heath), by gradation.
