|Origin of Florey, Meaning of Florey
Origin: The name "Flory," as well as its counterparts "Florey," "Florea" and "Flora," derives from the Swiss name "Fluri" or "Flori," and probably has something to do with farming and not with "the land of Flowers," as the French homonym would suggest. The name appears as part of a German phrase "uf der Fluri," or, "on the Fluri." "Flur" in German is a word for agraric land, pasture, or similar things. Thus, the original meaning might just be "someone who lives on a piece of land called Fluri," that is, a farmer. Thus the early Florys were probably farmers.
