It's a first name that goes back to the Middle Ages. It's the name of the love interest of the Italian 14th century writer Giovanni Boccaccio (like Beatrice for Dante and Laura for Petrarch). He wrote a book entitled: "Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta". Fiammetta is also one of the narrators in the frame story of the Decameron.

Both Dante Alighieri and Giovanni Boccaccio use this name for women (real or fictional) in their writings.
