Ottilie vs. Tilly

Which name do you prefer? I love both, but I wonder if [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] is maybe more wearable than just [name_f]Tilly[/name_f]?

The fact that they’re both “cutesy” or diminutives doesn’t bother me, and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] just doesn’t fit right with surname!

Thank you!

I definitely prefer a “formal” name for [name_f]Tilly[/name_f]. [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] is my favourite but if it doesn’t work for you, [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] is a nice option too.

I generally would prefer a formal name for [name_f]Tilly[/name_f], but I personally don’t care for [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] and would pick just plain [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] over it. However, it definitely works as a name to get nn [name_f]Tilly[/name_f], so, in that sense, it’s a great choice! :slight_smile:

I love [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] so much! I think it would be lovely as a nickname for [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f]!

I love ottilie! I think that it would be good to give tilly a full name too because it is a little cutesy, but ottilie is perfect!

I think [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] can stand alone but [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] is gorgeous

I prefer a “formal” name over a nicknamey name. [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] nn [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] is fantastic.

I much prefer [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] by itself

Ottilie is such a lovely name, and I have bad associations with the name [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] so I’m not personally a massive fan of it.

honestly, ottilie sounds like oddily to me without a british accent, so tilly gmv. tilly can work just fine on its own.
