Origin:Latin
Popularity:238
Meaning:From Laurentium
Lorenzo is a boy's name of Latin and Spanish roots meaning "from Laurentium." A true classic that's persevered in Southern Europe for over 100 years, Lorenzo's appeal could be thanks to his cultural significance. Possibly one of the best-known figures bearing the name is none other than Lorenzo de'Medici, the Florentine Renaissance prince and art patron. Lorenzo also appeared in Shakespearean plays and as famous artists Ghiberti and Lotto. Shorten the name to Renzo or Enzo for a cute spin on the old-worldly name while still allowing it to keep its timeless charm.
