I love love love this name and wish I had heard of it before naming dd (who is now 11)
Adore it!

Really nice. I also like Edilie.

As long as the surname isn't Bottilie.

I think it is lovely.

It's lovely

squoosh grin I get 'Ottilie Bottilie' when I see that name. In a thick brummie accent. Sorry OP.

I've got one. It's a family name. She's never been called Ottilie Bottilie, but she does get called Oatibix. hmm

I just hear "utterly".

Love it! I know one! A beautiful original name. Go for it!

I like it. I wouldn't use it unless I had some kind of French connection though, personally.

MyNameIsSuz Tue 04-Feb-14 21:10:26

I love it too!

HopeS01 Tue 04-Feb-14 22:49:35

I don't like it... I also just hear 'utterly'


pumpkinsweetie Thu 06-Feb-14 13:35:48

It sounds too much like utterly

I love the way it looks written down, and I want to love it, I just wish there wasn't the word 'utterly' and it would be great.

Same problem with Aurelie. I love it - lovely sound, pretty written down, BUT it sounds like 'orally'. Bloody English getting in the way sad

The utterly thing is my sticking point too - husband has german heritage and it is a german name originally I believe so not to worried about not having the French connection although I am Irish and might be driven mad by the family not being able to pronounce the child's name ..... so much to think about ... thanks for all the feedback! Lots to mull!

We've got friends wh have named their twin girls Ettilie and Elidie. Gorgeous, gorgeous names, but a bit of a mouthful with two of them! Separately I LOVE these names!
