Florence

Florence comes from Latin Florentius and its feminine form Florentia which is derived from Latin florens meaning “flourishing, prospering, blossoming” from flos (flower) which ultimately comes from the Proto-Indo-European toot word *bʰleh₃- (bloom, flower). Although Florence is commonly used as a girl’s name, it was also used as a boy’s name. Florence is also the capital of Tuscany as well as a surname derived from the given name.
