Meaning & History

From Latin Florentia, derived from florens, ("flowering"), ultimately from flos, meaning "flower". This is the name of the capital city of Tuscany, in central Italy, as well as several settlements throughout the United States.

The name of the city has also been used as a given name (see Florence), as in the case of Florence Nightingale.
