“The French name Adriencomes from the Roman cognomenHadrianus“, which means ”from Hadria“. In the days of the Roman Empire, Hadria was a town in northern Italy and the namesake of the Adriatic Sea.

The Adriatic Sea is known for the dark-colored sand on its beaches, and for this reason, the same name is also commonly translated as ’dark one.”
