I would assume it is a compound noun, mersh-nomoze, or mershno-moze
check a yiddish dictionary, maybe.

Yes, "Yiddish", thanks :)

I simply heard one guy call another this way, like, "you, mershnomoze"
Pejorative, probably

no idea, are you actually looking for this 'word' or are you just making something up?  If it is used in a context you might provide that.  I think you mean Yiddish.
