    What do you think of when you hear Ottilie?

    What type of name do you consider Ottilie to be? Do you love it? Hate it? What do you see/feel with Ottilie. What about Jade, what do you think of the combo Ottilie Jade -fn/mn?

    I'm not 100% sure about the pronunciation yet but I pronounce it -OT teh lee. OT rhyming with "got" and -teh lee said like Tilly.

    I'm not sure what Ottilie's history is... perhaps it has a legitimate history. But the name Ottilie definitely sounds made up to me. That aside, I actually think it's a pretty cute name. It's just the "made up" feel puts me off it a lot. Ottilie Jade is nice.

    I don't know about the name. I know that there is a woman who does a name blog online with a daughter named Ottilie. Otto is a family name but I had never seen this name before. It is definitely different and may confuse a lot of people in real life. The pronunciation was confusing for me until I went on Forvo.
    It is a cute name and won't be the hardest name to live with.

    I voted ugly but I don't really feel that way, I just don't care for it and I think the prn gets butchered by English speakers, which isn't their fault but I imagine people are going to say "oh till ee", "oh tuh lee" "ah tilly" so depending on where you are I'm not sure how usable it is.

    Sorry but I absolutely hate it.

    It sounds like oddly or hotly or otter-lee to me, which just is not a pleasant sound.

    It might fly in some areas though, it's just totally not my style and would be seen as super strange in my neck of the woods.
