As a nn for Dorothy/ea it's cute otherwise it feels odd. Sort of in the vein how Dorcas always feels a bit off kilter (at least to me).
I should probably point out that Dort is a German word meaning "there". And -chen makes any name the cutsy small child diminutive version of that name. So when I hear Dortchen I hear you saying "little there".
I'd stick with Dorothea as a FN and Dortchen as the nn.EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.
