Lorenzo


Gender: Masculine

Origin: Latin

Meaning: “Man from Laurentum.”

Detail: Italian and Spanish form of Laurentius, which meant “from Laurentum”, its name probably deriving from Latin laurus “laurel”.

Saint Laurence was a 3rd-century deacon and martyr from Rome.

In the Middle Ages this name was common in England (in a variety of spellings), partly because of a second saint by this name, a 7th-century archbishop of Canterbury.
