Comments and insights on the name Dottie: | Edit

This name is really sweet and feminine. It sounds a lot like a nickname, but could be used as a strong first or middle name. To me this name is close to "Dolly," like First Lady Dolly Madison, and reminds me of a firefighter, because of the spots on a dalmatian.
