Otto Frederick Warmbier is an American college student who was imprisoned in North Korea from March 2016 to June 2017 after being convicted of "hostile acts" against the country. Warmbier, then 21, confessed to stealing a political propaganda poster and was sentenced to 15 years' hard labor. The United States made diplomatic attempts to seek Warmbier's release. A U.S. State Department spokesman said Warmbier's harsh sentence was a response to U.S. sanctions against North Korea for its nuclear activities. According to his father, Warmbier's confession was forced and he was abducted by the North Korean regime for political purposes.

The name Otto makes me think of a complete stoner\drug-user. I just can not get past that association I built up in my mind. It also makes me think of the word "Auto" as in Automobile and the company, 'Auto zone' * hums *Get in the zone, auto\Otto zone".

I really like this name. Just reading the other commenter's comments - it's funny how accent can totally change the impression a name makes. In the American accent, I suppose Otto really does sound like "auto".

This name sounds crappy in American pronunciation, and it also sounds quite annoying in other languages. I can't get the image of the school bus driver on the Simpsons out of my head.
