FLOWERS Family HistoryThis picturesque surname has two distinct possible sources, each with its own history and derivation. In the first instance, Flowers may have originated as a patronymic form of the medieval nickname "Flo(u)r" from the Middle English "flor" via the Old French "flur", a flower. This was a conventional term of endearment in medieval romantic poetry, and as early as the 13th Century it was also regularly found as a female given name. "Flur" and "Flour" (without surname) occur in Records of Cornwall, dated 1297.
