"lotus flower"

Lotus Origin and Meaning

The name Lotus is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "lotus flower".

Lotus is one of the most languorous of the flower names, with intriguing significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism, symbolizing purity, grace and spiritual growth — not to mention a familiar yoga position.

In ancient Greece, the lotus was a legendary plant, whose fruit was eaten by the mythical lotus eaters, causing them to go into a state of hypnotic forgetfulness.

Lotus Flower is a Chinese character in the 1931 Pulitzer Prize-winning Pearl S. Buck novel, The Good Earth. Rain Pryor, daughter of comedian Richard, named her daughter Lotus Marie.
