Floril - Boudoir Art

Does this signature read as - "Floril" ??

A signature seen on these recent purchases, a pair of small original etchings of cute 1920's girls. I have no doubt that these are period as the came old period frames and the paper was nearly brown with age. But who is Floril ?

I can't find any biographicals details at all. I have traced several sold on French eBay over the years but none of those listing are available to view. I assume the artist is French and the style would date them to the early to mid 1920's, no real surprise.

Is Floril a real name ? was there a Monsieur or Madame Floril or perhaps it is a non de plume of a more established artist, used on his lesser work?
