Florges appears to be based on fairies and nymphs, in particular Anthousai due to its floral "hair". Its ornate, flowery "hair" may also be a reference to the 18th century pouf hairstyle, which was notable in that the style would commonly use decorative items within the hair itself to convey mood and uniqueness. Its body structure resembles that of the hyacinth flower, which has large sturdy leaves projecting from the base of the stalk. Its design may also draw inspiration from mermaids.
Florges may be a combination of flora and gorgeous.
