FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

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.
