This name is probably derived from that of an ancient locality (a vicus?) near the church of S. Lorenzo in Panisperna on the Viminal. The name comes into use about l000 A.D.; it was previously, e.g. in Eins. I. II; 5.7; 7. 13, called S. Laurentii in Formoso or ad Formosum, from the name of its founder (HCh 292-293; cf. HJ 376).
