Lorenzo is also Spanish, though of course the "z" sound would be pronounced differently in Spanish than it is in Italian. [noted -ed]

I never heard this name used in Italian. Only Spanish. Of course, in Spanish, it's pronounced lor-en-tho. [noted -ed]

Lorenzo di Piero de' Medici (Florence, January 1, 1449 – 9 April 1492) was an Italian statesman and ruler of the Florentine Republic during the Italian Renaissance.

Known as Lorenzo the Magnificent (Lorenzo il Magnifico) by contemporary Florentines, he was the most remarkable public figure of his time. Not only a wily diplomat and politician, he headed a brilliant group of scholars, artists, and poets and was accomplished in the manly arts of jousting and the hunt. He was charismatic, tough, passionate, and energetic, equally devoted to his city, his family, the church, and the pursuit of art and learning.

My fifth child's second middle name is Lorenzo. I like this name, but not enough to use it as a first name. I think it has a nice flow with any name, however.

Lorenzo Michael Murphy Odone is a famous bearer of this name. He was diagnosed with A.L.D back in the 1980's. His mother and father became extremely active in research for a cure, and came about "Lorenzo's Oil" which stopped the disease from progressing, but didn't reverse the affects.

This is trully an amazing story and movie. You should watch it if you can. ("Lorenzo's Oil")

The nickname "Renz" sounds cool, too. I have the image of a tall, mysterious type of guy.

Lorenzo is my son's name. It's such a great name. The secretary in his school said he has the best name in the school. He is only 6, so I was reluctant to use it, but I'm glad I did. I thought it sounded too old for a little boy. Everywhere we go people comment about what a great name he has.

Lori, Renzo, Rens, Enzo, Zo, It can have heaps of nicknames, that's why I like it. If by any chance you meet a 'Lorenzo' you can have different nicknames!
I have seen this only in a book though, I don't know anybody with the name Lorenzo.

Lorenzo is my favorite name. It sounds so nice when spoken. No matter where you're from, it can work as a name.

I always liked this name but when I started to really like it was after I watched "Lorenzo's Oil" (1992), a movie based on the true story of young Lorenzo Michael Murphy Odone. That movie touched my heart and that's why Lorenzo will always be a special name to me.
When I hear the name Lorenzo, I think of a vibrant, bright, and very kind boy with lots of courage and determination.
