During the Medieval period, the village was known as Flace, Flasso, or Phlasso, and old maps even showed it being marked as both Flaso and Fluso. It has been suggested that during the Frankish rule, the village was owned by a medieval family called de Flaße. This leads to the conclusion that this was the source of the village's name in honor of its proprietors, the de Flaßes family.
On the other hand, it is believed by some that the original founder of the village’s name was Vlasos, as it is suggested that the village’s founding dates back to the Byzantine era and that it was originally called St. Vlasios. Therefore, its current name of Flasou is of hagiological origin.
