[name]Hi[/name] Berries! :slight_smile:

I’ve been loving the name [name]Ottilie[/name] lately, but I’m not sure how it’s pronounced! Is it “oh-till-yuh” (as I would presume it would be in [name]German[/name]) or “oh-till-ee”? Also, what do you think of the name?

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Nicole[/name], I knew a [name]German[/name] woman with this name and she pronounced it “oh-till-ee” and that’s the way I’ve always pronounced the name too! This pronunciation would also be the most likely way [name]North[/name] Americans would pronounce it as well. I think it’s rare, sweet sounding and pretty looking.

I would pronounce it Oh-[name]Till[/name]-Ee, just from looking at it, but I’ve never met anybody of this name so I guess I could be wrong.
I want to like this name, I see the appeal and I know other people really like it and I think it shares a similar style or feel to some of my favourite names ([name]Elodie[/name], for example) but there’s just something about it I’m not keen on and I can’t put my finger on it. Probably just me being crazy.

If you love it, you should use it. x

The French pronunciation (I believe the name is of French origin) is definitely Oh-till-ee. :slight_smile:

I love [name]Ottilie[/name]! I think I like it pronounced AWT-till-ee or OH-till-ee, the first one being my favorite.
