French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French flou, from Old French flou, flo ‎(soft, wilted, tired, exhausted), from Old Frankish *hlāo ‎(lukewarm, tepid, mild), from Proto-Germanic *hlēwaz ‎(warm, lukewarm), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱlēw- ‎(to be warm or hot). More at lew.

Alternative etymology derives Old French flou, flo from Latin flavus ‎(yellow), though the semantics is difficult to trace.
