(veen-CHEN-tsah).
This pretty and melodic Italian name is a feminine form of Vincenzo which is derived from the Latin Vincentius. Vincentius is derived from the Latin term vincere meaning “to conquer.” The name is born by St. Vincenza Gerosa (1847) who was the co-foundress of the Sisters of Charity. Her feast is held on June 29. Vincenzina is another popular form.
