A pretty Sanskrit name, but people may want to think twice about using it in English speaking countries. Padma - pad - maxi pads. I don't know anyone who would want their name associated with feminine hygiene products.

From what I see on (ourbabynamer) Padma is only feminine in America, possibly due to the 'A' ending.

I like that the meaning is "lotus", a flower I rarely see as a meaning in names.

This is a cute name. It makes me think of a nice, laid-back, fun-loving guy, and a serene, thoughtful, and beautiful girl. It's great either way.

Oh, and it makes me think of Padma Maharassa, from the webcomic Friendly Hostility. He's the father of one of the two main characters, Fox, and he's a very eccentric man indeed.

This is a cool name but it kind of reminds me of a paddle for some reason.

Padma was George Lucas's inspiration when he named Padme Amidala, a main character in the Star Wars series. Many of her costumes and the sets associated with her character (house, palace, apartment, etc) sport lotuses.

Can also be spelled 'Padme' such as is the first name of the great, modern South Indian dancer, Dr. Padme Subramaniam. Padmini is a lovely variation of this name. There is a famous story of a beautiful medievel courtesan named 'Padmini' who was the princess of Chittorgah in North India.
