Fleur Delacour actually means flower of the heart.

The name Fleur Delacour actually does mean "flower of the court". The French word for heart is "le coeur", which sounds similar but is a completely different word. Also "la cour" is grammatically feminine, whereas "le coeur" is grammatically masculine.

This is not a common name at all, and I have never before heard it used.

Fleur Delacour's middle name is Isabelle.

My daughter would be Fleur, as her name is a delicate yet beautiful name for a strong girl like my daughter. Long live the name Fleur and my daughter too.

I first saw this name in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I really love it and think it's so pretty. I love French names, they're so delicate and beautiful.

I love this name, it is so sweet and innocent!

Just listen to it! It reminds me of McFlurry at McDonald's.

Liked this name a lot better before Fleur from Harry Potter came about. She created one of those associations I don't like. The name is still awesome though.

It's a bit frilly, but still I like it.

Fleur is a gorgeous name. :) So French and perfect.

Why is the usage English when this is a French word and name? [noted -ed]

I have learned not to trust this site too much when it comes to the usage of a name. A lot of English names are used in the Netherlands as well and that's never stated here. I've never actually met a French girl named Fleur but I'm sure they use it, it's very nice!

Between 1900-2006, 3421 babies were named Fleur in France. 158 in 2006. A very uncommon but old French name. St Fleur of Beaulieu (also known as Flora) is notable as is the Harry Potter character.

This name may have a cute meaning, but it sounds flat out ugly. It also sounds quite pretentious in English usage, and I once got exposed to the cruel, cold-hearted, nasty writing of a Scottish poet with this name (her surname escapes me). Now the name always makes me think of the visceral reaction I got to her writing and attitude.

A variation on this name is Blancefleur, one of the main characters in "Floris and Blancefleur". It's a medieval Dutch love story.

Can either sound really pretty or really pretentious. Depends on the bearer, I guess. I happen to like it.
-- amishigloo  6/25/2008
Nice idea, but it sounds horrible in English. Fluuurrr. Like "Urgh". Or a bit like Claire in a Scouse accent. It also gives off a pretentious, precious vibe. Plus, it reminds me of a character I found really, really irritating on Home and Away, oh, about 10 years ago, but she was that annoying that I see her face when I hear the name! I do like Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter, though!

Very pretty. Sounds fine in an English accent.

Prominent New Zealand-born, British-based poet Fleur Adcock (b. 1934), recipient of the Queen's Medal for Poetry in 2006.

I think this is one of the prettiest one-syllable female names; I like the fact that it has historic roots, having been used occasionally in Angevin England owing to Norman influence, and is not a mere concoction of John Galsworthy.
-- Jonquil  10/15/2008
I think the original fictional bearer was Fleur Forsyte, daughter of Soames and Annette, in John Galsworthy's "The Forsyte Saga" published in the 1920s.

This name is ugly. It looks like the Dutch name Floor, only pronounced in a "fancy" way. This name makes me think of a snooty faux-French girl who is obsessed with fashion and poodles.
-- bananarama  4/19/2009
Beautiful. Makes me think of some medieval Norman beauty.

American writer Fleur Cowles (1908-2009). Her birth name was Florence Friedmann.

Fleur Agema is a Dutch politician.

Fleur manages to come across as both an undeniably feminine and also no-nonsense name.

The fleur-de-lis has been used as royal symbol and as a symbol for the Virgin Mary in religious art.

In Australia, Fleur is a brand of tampon. No matter how nice it sounds, you would have to hold a gun to my head to make me put my child through the agony of this name and its association.

Fleur Delacour is the Beauxbatons champion for the Triwizard Tournament, in Harry Potter.

This name sounds so delicate and innocent. I would like it as a middle name more than as a first name, though.
