What are your thoughts? Its not a name that I have really liked that much in the past, but for some reason it has really grown on me - I like lottie as a nickname.

Lottie is cute. Charlotte's a bit boring imho but I've heard much worse! grin

Lottie is a great name but imho it's a bit weird when a nickname starts with a different letter to the proper name iyswim...

If you like Lottie I would just call her Lottie, forget the boring Charlotte bit.

Wish that's what my parents had done wink

I love the name Charlotte as well - I will earmark that as middle name for DD2 (as yet unconceived) as my cousin has a daughter called Charlotte.

Oh my friend had a Charlotte in May, lovely

Lovely smile

in March (oops)

It's lovely- classic and timeless imo.

I think Charlotte is very pretty.

Charlotte in its original form (not charlie or char or lottie) is a beautiful and classy name with timeless style and versatility. Lottie is the least offensive nickname, but I like the full name.

DP doesn't like it after all....says its boring! Back to the drawing board!!!

Agree with sockmonster. Charlotte is beautiful. If you must shorten it, Lottie is the best.

I think it is pretty and its actually not used very much where I live. I also like the idea of Charlie or Lottie which gives you a bit of variation depending on how she turns out!

I love the name Charlotte. My dd2 has a slightly different name.

MaggieBee Sun 07-Jun-09 18:10:35

I like LOTTIE and I like Charlie. Not keen on charlotte in full. Lottie is gorgeous though.

Pingpong Sun 07-Jun-09 20:35:15

Lottie with t's pronounced is nice. Loh ee with no t's sounds terrible IMO.
My SIL is called Charlotte and family call her Lottie. I can't bring myself to say it. I prefer the full name although I do have another friend who I call Charlie and it suits her.

I wanted to call DD Charlotte (nn Lottie), but DH would not let me sad

Karam Sun 07-Jun-09 21:19:30

Ditto Blame. DH loved Charlotte, but not Lottie, so that was vetoed for me.

I love the name though!

i love the name charlotte, would never dream of calling dd lottie or charley as a nickname though.

FlappytheBat Mon 08-Jun-09 00:10:06

Charlotte is a lovely name, but Lottie, have to admit I really don't like at all - could have something to do with the Lottie the LadyBird playmat we bought for dd1.

Lottie to me, will always remind me of a M&P playmat!
