Meanings and history of the name Lorenz: | Edit

Lorenz is the German version of the Latin name Laurentius, which derives from the Latin word laurus, meaning 'laurel'. The laurel was a symbol of victory as it was used by the ancient Greeks to crown winners of Olympic games. In ancient Rome the laurel wreath became the symbol of martial victory, crowning successful commanders.

Part of this crowning tradition still lives on in modern day Italy where students get a laurel crown after obtaining a bachelor's or master's degree (laurea in Italian).
