Florian Lampert (July 8, 1863 in West Bend, Wisconsinmarker – July 18, 1930 in Chicago Heights, Illinoismarker), was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from 1918-1930, serving Wisconsin's 6th District.

In 1918 he was elected as a Republican to fill the vacancy in the 65th Congress caused by the death of James H. Davidson.
