You pronounce the name as: FLORE-is. [noted -ed]

Also used in Afrikaans, where it shortens to Floors. This is not pronounced like the English word. The -s makes an -s sound, not a -z sound, and the -oo- is a diphthong close to the English sound of hesitation: oo-er!

Once I saw a professor of history named Floors van Jaarsveld being publicly tarred and feathered for taking a politically unpopular stance about a very emotional topic. He was brave and resolute.
