Etymology of the name BLANCHEFLOUR.
Meaning of the baby name BLANCHEFLOUR.

  

BLANCHEFLOUR.  Early English form of Arthurian Blanchefleur (q.v.), meaning "white flower."

... Floris and Blancheflour, is supposed to have been derived through the French from Oriental sources; but no specific tale has yet been identified... On the whole, while an Oriental tale may have existed in regard to this Earthly Paradise, I incline to think that Floris and Blancheflour represents only a French story of young lovers similar to Aucassin and Nicolete, that arose probably in the south of France and was early blended with travellers' tales from the Orient... (Early English Romances in Verse, Rickert, 1908)
