Meaning & History

French form of Flavinius. The Flavigny Abbey, in the French region of Burgundy, became famous because of the candies made by its Benedictine monks, called the anise of Flavigny. Famous bearers were Hugh of Flavigny, young abbot in the 11th century, and the French writer Marie d'Agoult, born Marie de Flavigny, who wrote under the male pen name Daniel Stern.
