Lorenzo History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Lorenzo was first used in Spain and throughout the Iberian peninsula. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century. The patronymic name Lorenzo is derived from the given name Lorenzo, which is itself derived from the Old German personal name meaning laurel. In Portugal the name became Lourenco, in Scandinavia, the name took the variant Larsen, in Germany it became Lorenz, and in France the name was formed as Laurent. The Lorenzo form of the name is common to Italy, Spain and Portugal.
