Ancient word of Sanskrit origin Utpal (Sanskrit उत्पल) means lotus or a blossoming flower. Utpal also refers to something that is flesh-less or emaciated.
Mention of Utpal is found in various Epics like Ramayan (रामायण), Mahabharata (महाभारत) and Raghuvansh (रघुवंश) as the blossom of a blue lotus. Reference of Sushrut (सुश्रुत) and Meghdoot (मेघदूत) where Utpal means seed of a plant named Nymphaea.
Utpal is also referenced in Bhavprakash (भावप्रकाश) and Varah-Mihir-Brihat-Sanhita (वराह-मिहिर-बृहत्-संहिता) in which this word denotes water lily. Lexicographers like Amar Singh and Hemchandra have also used this word in their writings in which Utpal is used for any flower in general.
Utpal is not a popular name in the USA as it is shown in the chart above. Utpal is a pretty popular name in India. As per social media sites, Utpal is used by more than 800 people as the name of their children.
In our opinion Utpal is a short and sweet name. Utpal also has a nice meaning attached to it. But, Utpal is little hard to pronounce for non Indians, might be that is why not popular in the USA.
