"Fioletowa" sounds like it comes from "violet", only that the first letter became devoiced. Can this word refer to the colour "violet"?

No idea but here https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purpur it does not look like here https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barwa_purpurowa the one people actually mean by purpura is either (30s) or tyryjsak
