I like it, young, cool, smart, slightly posh.

I met a 1 year old one this week and love the name, really cute boy with a shock of white blond hair.

Love it.

its an elevator

Yep. sounds like a lift. But B Ferry has a son called Otis (after Mr Redding of course) and that's quite cool. But to me, it's a lift.

OK, perhaps a little pretentious though.

Otis is very cool. Great choice.

Don't see what is pretentious.... should we all choose Jack and Charlie type names so as not to be viewed as pretentious hmm? Let's encourage more name diversity - makes life much more fun & interesting!

Don't you think any names carry any associations though hula? It's a bit unrealistic to think all names give exactly the same impressions.

Mondayschild78 Wed 28-Sep-11 09:08:10

I like it, sounds interesting and a bit different

"Don't you think any names carry any associations though hula? It's a bit unrealistic to think all names give exactly the same impressions."

Of course, I associate names with the people bearing the name. We all do and we therefore all have different associations, depending on who we've met with a certain name. If I meet a lovely Otis I will associate the name with this lovely person, on the other hand, if I meet an annoying Otis, I will associate it with him.

That's what names are for, for identifying people and associating their name with their person.

I like Otis - and don't know any little (or big) ones. Great choice imo!

I remember a little boy in my son's playgroup called Otis - love the name smile

randomimposter Wed 28-Sep-11 14:32:40

I know a couple of boys called Otis (under 5).
It was also the middle name of a girl I was at university with about a million years ago.
It's nice.

ellesabe Wed 28-Sep-11 21:30:37

I wanted an Otis but dh vetoed it. It's my fave smile

airborne Wed 28-Sep-11 21:58:46

Was on my list and dp also shunned it. booooo. I love it, I know one & I don't think its pretentious.

birdofthenorth Wed 28-Sep-11 22:26:06

Love Otis, great name (except for Ferry junior, who is a fox hunting twit)

Lonnie Wed 28-Sep-11 22:36:32
