Meaning:flowering or in bloom
Florence is a feminine name of mixed origins. In its Latin origin, it means "flowering" or "in bloom". But on the Italian side, it'd be silly to not address the elephant in the room. Or rather, the gorgeous river side city studded with beautiful architecture, art, and culture. Though in Italian the city name is "Firenze", Florence is still a beautiful homage.
