    I think they're all aesthetically pleasing, and I do like all of them, but I personally would go for Otylia--I'm such a sucker for Polish names, and even better because it has significance to you! I would love to meet a Catherine Otylia!

    I think you would have the least amount of confusion with Otylia.

    Otylia. I'd only pronounce Ottilie with a -lee ending (ott-uh-lee), not -ah

    Thanks, everyone!

    The comments leaned toward Otylia, but the poll gave a definite victory to Ottilia, so I forced Hubby (who says we can tentatively put it on the list - yay!) to choose from between those two and he said Ottilia was the most straightforward. So, Catherine Ottilia it is! Now just to convince him to turn that "tentatively" into a "definitely"...
