Its source is Laurentius, a Latin name meaning "Man from Laurentum."
This boy's name is used in German.
The ancient city of Laurentum was located in present-day Italy. It probably got its name from the laurel bush, an important plant to the people of ancient times, who fashioned triumphant garlands from its branches.
