* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' novel ''Mirror Dance'', the women of the Durona group are all named after plants because their clone mother is named Lily. The men have avian-themed names, instead.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', women from the Beifong family seem to be named after flowers. Toph’s name means “lotus” and her mother is called Poppy. It’s not averted by Toph’s own daughter, Lin, from the sequel series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' despite appearances. For the name Lin different Chinese characters can be used, one being the same character for Lotus.

* During UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne and [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII II]], the Royal Navy used "Flower" class ships which could be built quickly as convoy escorts. The WWI class was originally a type of minesweeper (5 sub-classes, 120 units in all), while the WWII class was a corvette (267 units in all).
