This was the nickname of one of author Harriett Beecher Stowe's twin daughters. Hattie and Eliza Stowe were born in 1836, and Hattie, the more adventurous of the twins, lived until 1907.

I love this as a nickname. I'd only name my daughter Hattie if I lived in England though. The name sounds awesome with a British accent (same with the name Lottie). Hattie sounds weird with my American accent (HADDIE).

Could potentially be used as a nickname for Henrietta.

Hattie is such an adorable, sweet name for a girl. ^_^

This name reminds me of the British comedic actress Hattie Jacques but it was just her stage name.
Hattie is popular with the posh set in the UK as a nickname for Harriet but I think Hallie is much prettier.

It doesn't even sound like a name. It's just awful. It was also my grandma's first name (blasted mean, old woman).

I think this is a beautiful name. My cousin is named Hattie, & my great grandmother was also called Hattie (although her real name was Hedwig). Hattie is an uncommon name, but sounds very pretty and unique.

"The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" is a topical song written by the American musician Bob Dylan.

The song was released on Dylan's album The Times They Are A-Changin' and gives a generally factual account of the killing of 51-year-old barmaid Hattie Carroll by the wealthy young tobacco farmer from Charles County, Maryland, William Devereux "Billy" Zantzinger (whom the song calls "William Zanzinger"), and his subsequent sentence to six months in a county jail. Dylan's song, however, sentenced Zantzinger to lifelong infamy.

The song never mentions that Zantzinger was white, and Hattie Carroll black and the lyrics are a commentary on the racism of the 1960s, which valued a black woman's life so lightly.

Hattie Carroll was killed by a toy cane.

I can't get past the association to this story - but maybe that's partly why I like the name. Now it's someone and something important to remember. Poor woman.

Rachel Bilson has a younger sister named Hattie. She was named after their great-grandmother, who was a screenwriter.

I like this name better than Harriet. It's simple, but not flat and boring. Sounds like a name of someone who is youthful, pretty and intelligent.

Sounds too much like an adjective formed of 'hat'. Also, too old-fashioned and youthful.

This name sounds so snotty and mean. Eww.

Hattie is an adorable nickname, although I wish it was used for a name other than Harriet.

I love the name Hattie. It's a cuit, smart, modern, girly kinda name!

I personally like this name, not enough to use it though. But if someone else does, go for it. Hattie would sound refreshing today in the world of Emily's and Madison's.

Cute form of Hariet.

I love this name. I makes me think of someone pretty and honest, with blue eyes and light brown hair.

Hattie was the elder stepsister in 'Ella Enchanted'.
