An older comment mentioned that this name is becoming less popular. I was kind of wondering that it would make a cool character name for a villain, like someone else said. However, this name could also be really cool for a dog, like a German Shepherd? I could just imagine someone saying "Lothar! Come here, boy! There you are! Who's a good puppy?! Who's a good puppy?!" followed by a treat and a good belly rubbing.

Sorry, but that's what popped into my mind. I hope I haven't offended anyone.

"From the Germanic name Chlodochar"..

I am uncertain, but Chlodchar sounds very much like a Latinized Germanic name. Especially when it continues:

..."meaning "famous army", derived from the elements hlud "famous" and hari "army"."

Lothar is the name of a character in the "Mandrake the Magician" comic strip; to be precise, it's the name of Mandrake's sidekick. Those who grew up in the 1980s may remember both characters from their appearance in the cartoon series "Defenders of the Earth", where the th is pronounced as in "thin".
