I love the name Lottie but I'm not sure it holds up as a name in it's own right and I'm just not that keen on Charlotte (I went to school with a Charlotte who was a bit of a bully and it always makes me think of her).
Are there any other names for which Lottie would make a good nn? I was thinking maybe Scarlett or Ottolie, both of which I like, but just wondering if there are any others I haven't come up with yet?
There's a Lottie at school, aged 5. The parents didn't want a Charlotte so they named her what they planned to call her. There's always going to be the people who think you should have a long name as well but I think manufacturing a long name just to get to a nick name is just as bizarre.
Do you like otillie? Scarlett isn't a great name and not an obvious name to get lottie from.
Personally I like Charlotte. You can't go too wrong with it. It's classic. Then you can use Lottie all you want.
