Name Meaning

French and English (of Norman origin):1. from the medieval personal name Fleuri (Latin Florius, a derivative of the Roman family name Florus, from flos ‘flower’, genitive floris). This name was borne by a 3rd-century saint martyred in Nicomedia under the emperor Decius. There seems to have been some confusion with a Germanic personal name composed of the elements hlōd ‘fame’ + rīc ‘power’. 2. habitational name from any of the various places in northern France which get their names from the Gallo-Roman personal name Florus (see above) + the locative suffix -acum. 3. nickname from Old French fluri ‘flowered’, ‘variegated’ (a derivative of flur Flower ). This could have denoted someone who dressed in an extravagant mixture of colors or perhaps one who had a blotchy complexion.
