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.

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.

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 Pellerin is a French former civil servant, businesswoman and socialist politician who served as French government minister from 2012 to 2016. Pellerin was born in 1973 in Seoul, South Korea, where she was abandoned on the streets only three or four days' old before being rescued by an orphanage; six months later she was adopted by a French family. According to her adoption records she was called Kim Jong-Suk, although it is unclear how she came by that name. Raised by middle-class parents — her father, who has a doctorate in nuclear physics, is a small-business owner — she grew up in two Paris suburbs, Montreuil and Versailles.
