It sounds kinda masculine to be honest with you. Either way it’s nice as a name. I love it as a middle name for a girl. Even though there are better floral names.
My name is Lotus. It means purity and enlightenment and it's the name of a goddess.
I don't care for this name at all.

I think "Lottie" could be a good nickname for Lotus, even though it's originally a nickname for Charlotte.
Super duper hippie name. I agree with the comment below me there are better floral names out there if that's the vibe you want. But I ain't stopping you if you use this because Lotus sounds so unique.
I love flower names, but Lotus looks so unfeminine and ugly. There are so many flower names that are better: Rose, Magnolia, Marigold, etc.
I named my Daughter ILY Lotus, she is beautifully unique in her own way. She blossoms daily, her first name ILY means I love you, her middle name LOTUS is a beautiful flower!

She is my diamond.

I think Lotus is a beautiful name. Sounds perfect.
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.
The Lotus tree (Greek: λωτός, lōtós) is a plant that occurs in stories from Greek and Roman mythology.

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.
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.
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.
