It’s a word full of of goodness and love means “watchtower” in Hebrew. It is specifically referred to in Genesis 31 in the bible in connection with Jacob and Laban making an agreement in the presence of God.  It has since become associated with the emotional bond of those who have either passed or where there is great absence due to distance.

“And Mizpah; for he said, The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.” Genesis 31:49
