Laurence

Laurence is an English male name deriving from Roman cognomen Laurentius meaning “from Laurentum”, Laurentum being an ancient city in Italy most likely derived from Latin laurus meaning “laurel”; it’s also a French female name also deriving from Laurentius. It derives from Ancient Greek daphne (laurel, bay), likely coming from a much older source; the letters changed from d- to l- due to a change in dialect. Laurence is also a surname deriving from the given name.
