If you follow celebrity baby names, you've probably been wondering what Zooey Deschanel named her little one. And Elsie Otter is certainly very Zooey Deschanel!
Personal thoughts: I don't mind it. Elsie is on-trend even though the name itself isn't super popular and with the popularity of Elsa, Ellie, and Eliza I could see it gaining traction. It's actually a lot higher ranked than I would have guessed! I think it's cute. Otter.... well, I tend to say that anything goes in the middle as long as it's not offensive so I guess I should stand by that. Elsie Otter may sound like Emmet Otter's little sister (Emmett Otter? Am I old?), but I imagine she'll go by Elsie day-to-day.

I really like it! Its a very spunky name.“I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.”

I can see it on a little girl or an old lady, but I don't see Elsie Otter aging well on adolescents or adults. It's very adorable, however.Angeliki "Annie" or "Kit" | Deaf | Homeschooler | Rock climber | Writer |
Working on NaNoWriMo at the moment so no name list for now. Come December, maybe.

I think Elsie is lovely. If she thinks of her name as too cutesy when she grows up, she can always go by Elsa (it works the other way 'round, too). I like Otter as a nickname for Otto (or a water-loving child), not so much as full name, but I don't think it's any different than Fox or Tiger, and at least the former is considered usable by many people.

Ottilie, Ottilia, Ottoline/Ottolina, Otso (bonus bear nn), Otis, etc. Elsie feels cutesy to me, but when it comes down to it there are a lot of names that end in that sound that it really shouldn't matter (Sophie, Zoey, Chloe, Lily, etc.). They will be adults soon enough! Even though I would have loved to see Elsie Ottoline nn Otter, I don't think the name is that crazy compared to a lot of other celebrity baby names.GP Combos
