In The Odyssey, they land on an island inhabited by the people called the 'Lotus Eaters'. If you eat it you will forgot and never want to leave the island.

The lotus was an important symbol for many cultures because it represented enlightenment or triumph. The lotus grows out of mud but blooms pure and untainted.

This is a very pretty name that conveys grace and beauty. It is also the name of a British car manufacturer who makes light and high-powered sports cars (i.e. the Lotus Esprit).

Maybe this would be pretty if you weren't in a culture where it was the name of a car, but to me it just brings visions of a trio of horrible little brats called Lotus, Lexus and Porsche - with a mum and dad on welfare.

It's a very strange word to use as a name. It will probably lead to some rather nasty jokes about Lotus-eating when the girl is in middle school and high school.

Definitely not something I would name a child, but it sounds cool for a secret society.
Note the White Lotus Iroh founded in Avatar the Last Airbender.

Lotus is one of my middle names. As my first name is common, I am often called Lotus by friends.
I tend to get positive responses to it. Lotus is rightfully first and foremost associated with the flower, not the car.

I love the Lotus flower, but it's not a very good name, and it sounds the slightest bit masculine.

The Lotus tree (Greek: λωτός, lōtós) is a plant that occurs in stories from Greek and Roman mythology.

The Lotus tree is mentioned in Homer's Odyssey, the Lotus tree bore a fruit that caused a pleasant drowsiness and was the only food of an island people called the Lotophagi or Lotus-eaters.

In Ovid's Metamorphoses, the nymph Lotis was the beautiful daughter of Neptune, the god of water and the sea. In order to flee the violent attention of Priapus, she invoked the assistance of the gods, who answered her prayers by turning her into a Lotus tree. [noted -ed]

I don't like this as a name. The ending is purely masculine, and it doesn't sound like a female name at all, but it doesn't sound like a masculine name either.
