Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'s'' spinoff, ''Persona5DancingStarNight'', gives the [[PlayerCharacter self-insert protagonist]] the name "Ren Amamiya" (雨宮 蓮), which is also being used in the anime adaptation. The kanji spelling Ren's name means "lotus." There's also Haru Okumura, whose name is the general meaning of "spring," and to a lesser extent there's Futaba ("two leaves") and her mother Wakaba ("young leaf").

* Technically, the Easter Bunny from ''Literature/TheGuardiansOfChildhood'' series as his full name is [[PunnyName E. Aster Bunnymund]] -- 'Aster' being an entire genus of flowering plants. Given his portrayal in the books, the association is likely unintentional, but it's given more meaning in his [[RiseOfTheGuardians movie portrayal]], where he's a spirit of spring. This has led to a fandom trend of using this trope for original Pooka characters including, occasionally, AU versions of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brunnera_macrophylla Jack Frost.]]

* The main mechas from ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'' all share the name with several flowers, with their designs matching their color scheme. For a step further, the male pilots are called stamens and the female pilots are called pistils.

Added DiffLines:

* The titular [[AMechByAnyOtherName mecha]] from ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'' are all named after genera of flowering plants, such as Strelizia (bird-of-paradise), Delphinium (larkspur), and Chlorophytum (spider plant). Taking it a step further, each Franxx is piloted by a male-female couple known respectively as ''stamen'' and ''pistil'', after the male and female sexual organs of flowers.

* Used in ''Fanfic/SomeSemblanceOfMeaning'', which makes sense, seeing as it's a HungerGames fanfiction. Several characters are given floral names: Laurel, Briony, Phlox, Cassia (a type of tree), Tansy([[spoiler: the real name of Lavinia Gilden]]), etc. (Also, the author's pen name is Volcanic ''Lily''.)
