LANGUAGE FAMILY:

ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
LAURUS > LAURENTUM > LAURENTĭUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin “Laurentum” (wreathed/crowned with laurel), which in turn derives from “laurus”, meaning “laurel, from the place of laurel trees, laurel branch, laurel wreath”. Laurentum was an ancient Roman city of Latium situated between Ostia and Lavinium, on the west coast of the Italian Peninsula southwest of Rome. Laurence (Laurentius) was the second Archbishop of Canterbury from about 604 to 619. He was a member of the Gregorian mission sent from Italy to England to Christianize the Anglo-Saxons from their native Anglo-Saxon paganism, although the date of his arrival is disputed. San Lorenzo "St. Lawrence" is also linked to the night of the falling stars.
