German, Scandinavian diminutive of Charlotte
"free man"

Lotte Origin and Meaning

The name Lotte is girl's name meaning "free man".
Lotte is a short form of Charlotte and a name used in its own right in Scandinavia as well as Dutch- and German-speaking countries. It’s unlikely to catch on in the US, where even Lottie hasn’t reached its full potential. Unisex Charlie will remain Charlotte’s nickname of choice for the foreseeable future.

Lotta is the phonetic spelling, albeit one with more teasing potential.
