My aunt's name was Florence
. She was born in County Roscommon. She was addressed as Florry
by everybody that knew her. The reference book I have lists Florence
as an English name, derived from latin. It means flourishing or blooming. Florry
is listed as a separate name,also English derived from the latin word flora meaning,flower. Both names are listed as unusual for men.
The name Tracie
may have been derived from.the names of two islands, Teresa
, and Therasia(Theresia). or Theros.(summer. An
alternate spelling is Treacy like Sean
Treacy.. I have no meaning listed for the name although warlike people occupied both those islands.
