Comments and insights on the name Ottilie: | Edit

We chose the name Ottilie for our daughter and it suits her completely. We read somewhere it meant 'Little Wealthy One' and I have seen other references to 'wealth' from German or possibly Czechoslovakian origins. It is always commented on as an unusual name and people in rural Ireland (where we currently live) often have difficulty pronouncing it correctly, variously arriving at 'Utterly' or 'Autelleh'. We shorten it to Otty or Otters and love the name as much as we love Ottilie herself.

W're naming our daughter Ottilie, nickname will be Lottie. Meaning is 'Prosperous' and 'Wealthy'. Pronounced OTT-ILL-EEE
