In regards to Irish, the surname "Tracey" is derived from a masculine name, "Treasach" meaning 'warlike.' The feminine form is derived from the Irish-Gaelic surname in genative tense "Treasaigh" and also similarity to "Theresa."
In a modern context, I cannot wager from whence "Florry" is sourced, but tradition says "Florence" is masculine.
