Lottie Origin and Meaning

The name Lottie is a girl's name of English origin meaning "free man".

Lottie is a nostalgic great-grandma name that conjures up lockets and lace, and -- like Nellie, Josie, Hattie, Tillie, and Milly -- has considerable vintage charm. A Top 100 name at the end of the nineteenth century, Lottie fell off the popularity list around 1960, but well might climb back on most likely as a diminutive for the currently popular Charlotte. It's already an amazing Number 85 in England and Wales.

There are several Charlottes who go by Lottie in kids lit, in particular in The Little Princess and the film The Princess and the Frog.

Similar feel: Lettie.

I'm okay with Charlotte but Lottie makes me nauseous.

NameLover 11 Says:


This name is such a cute nn to Charlotte. I love this shabby chic vintage vibe this name gives off.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I adore Lottie as a nickname for Charlotte. I currently prefer it to Charlie, but I love both, as well as the full name. Unless you particularly want Lottie or Charlie to be the given name, it's best, in my opinion, to use Charlotte. That leaves your daughter with more options.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I prefer to see Charlotte as the given name. It's so beautiful that I don't know why anyone wouldn't use it, and it gives the child/adult the option of using Charlotte, Charlie or Lottie later on.

All these "tt" names look great in writing but I don't think they sound great with the American accent. We tend to turn t into d when it falls in the middle of a word. Say "metal" and "medal" out loud. So Lottie sounds like Loddie. I loved Ottilie but every time I say it fast and in a natural way, it comes out Oddily. In the Brittish accent it's gorgeous!

Ten years ago, I was quite fond of Lottie (full name Charlotte). A lot of names I liked as an adolescent are becoming super trendy nowadays. Paisley, Charlotte (although always a classic), Blythe (rising in popularity).

RoddyThlayli Says:


No idea why, but I really dislike Lottie and Charlotte.

Lottie Says:


Lottie is a beautiful name. Any baby that has this name is lucky because they will be named after THE lottie murray. Lottie means free man, so maybe the baby will come with a free man to take care of it.

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


I hate the name Charlotte but this is really cute! Lottie is an adorable name, it doesn't have to be saved for a nn.

jojobabyberry Says:


This type of names (Lottie, Josie, Nellie..) seriously bother me. It's just way too cutesy for my taste.

raevynstar Says:


Well, it's cute, but I prefer Lettie. :)

jan11th Says:


Best nn for Charlotte out there

jasminegarden Says:


a pretty name that actually sounds substantial as a full name, you wouldn't necessarily need to name her the mega-popular Charlotte in order to use this

Guest Says:


MUCH better than Charlie

ambg Says:


Little Lottie
let her mind wander
Little Lottie thought
Am I fonder of dolls
or of goblins
or shoes?

Cute name, works best as a nickname derived from Charlotte.
