    I beleive the name question is of Spanish origin.  The "y Florit"  "tag" 
at the end of the name is a very old custom in reference to the maiden name 
of the mother.  (of Florit)  I am not sure if all Spanish heritages used this 
custom or not.  The friend who explained this to me years ago was Puerto 
Rican.   If you don't get any more knowledgeable answers  I will see if I 
can find out more.   
Good Luck, Jackie
