FLORES Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Flores, Florez, Florio, Floris, Flori, and possibly others, this is an Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese surname, although with some Germanic associations. It derives from the original Roman (Latin) 'florus', meaning 'to flourish or bloom', the Romans being occupiers of Spain and Portugal for several centuries. They were driven out on the collapse of the Roman Empire in the year 410, by the tribes known as the Vizigoths and the Huns, who swept down from what is now Eastern Germany in the 5th century a.d.
