Gre (LOH-tees); Eng (LOH-tis).
The name is born in Greek mythology by a naiad nymph who inhabited and looked over the springs of Sperkheios in Northern Greece. She was changed into a lotus tree after evading the advances of the god Priapos. Later, Dryope picked a flower from the Lotis tree and in punishment, Dryope herself was transformed into a tree. Lotis is also the name of a species of butterfly as well as a lady bug. Possible nickname options include Lottie. The English translation of Lotus is also a possible first name choice.
