Is it just how it is spelled, or am I missing something?
I think the French pronunciation would be like ‘ot-tee-lee’, but I always feel awkward trying to pronounce it. It comes out as ODD-a-lee most of the time… that’s one of the reasons I’ve never really loved this name.
I think this is such a pretty name. I actually know of a little [name]Ottilie[/name] - very adorable.
I would pronounce it Ot-till-lee (Ot sounding like the first syllable in automobile or the word ought).
