Used occasionally in Angevin England.

I think Fleur would be a beautiful name for a baby girl. It's not popular, she would be the only one in her class, but it's beautiful and there is nothing about it to make fun of. A good name for a little girl and a mature woman.

I really like Fleur. It's a beautiful name.

I love it too, but my husband thinks it's weird, and he goes for names that are more common.

Well your husband stinks because Fleur is the most beautiful name ever!
