From the experts:
Fleur is a generic, delicate flower name that emigrated into the English-speaking world when John Galsworthy bestowed it on one of the Forsytes in his celebrated saga. More recently, there was Fleur Delacour, a French witch and the Beauxbatons champion for the Triwizard Tournament in Harry Potter.
Fleur is currently Number 21 in Holland, home of the tulip and other fleurs.
As for the literal translation, Flower, don't forget that it was the name of the little skunk in Bambi.
