Dutch variation of Florence, Latin

Floris Origin and Meaning

The name Floris is a boy's name of Dutch origin meaning "flowering".

This Dutch favorite was the name of five Counts of Holland and many notable Renaissance artists, including still life painter Floris van Dijck. It is a variation of Florence, which was historically a unisex name.

If you think Floris sounds, well, floral, you’d be right. But who says boys can’t have botanical names, too?
