I say it as Shar-LOT-a - like charlotte, but 'otta' at the end, as per Carlotta. If it was written as Carlotta, then that would be Car-lotta. I could be wrong, though. I just guessed based upon what seemed logical.

I noticed that. It's a clearly a typo, but needs fixing.

In the 'origin' it is listed as a variation of itself, rather than of Charlotte. This needs fixing.

I know right?! I always think of that. The way she was written always gave me a great visual, with her big bow! I've always said this name "Car-lotta" is that how it's pronounced?

I think this name is very pretty, and a good alternative to the popular Charlotte.
It also reminds me of a character in the Anne of Green Gables series.
