Mauve is a kinda purple-ish colour (a bit like lilac). It comes from the French word mauve which is a type of flower which looks like this.

It's similar to how the colour orange got its name from the fruit, except here it's a flower :)

Also, "mov" sounds very similar with "mauve".

Yeah the only difference is the vowel. In French it's kinda like muhv and Romanian, mohv.

I'm just glad to finally find a tree that teaches mauve! (I really like that color, though it's not my favorite)

What an interesting fact! Even the colour perception is so different among speakers of different languages. I have also learnt a new colour in English. :-) Thank you for the answer! :-)
