Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
I really like this name. I just fear it is becoming too popular as it is a nickname for Charlotte (which is in the top ten most popular names).

Lotte is the name of a confectionery company in Japan and South Korea. The founder named it after the character in 'The Sorrows of Young Werther'. So every time I hear this name, I think of candy.

As well as just generally hating this name, I feel obliged to point out that 'la Lotte' can mean 'monkfish' in French, 'codfish' in Old French and 'burbot' in Canadian French. Not said the same, but written down, who's to know? An ugly name with an unfortunate coincidence.

In Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita", the title character's mother (Charlotte) is nicknamed Lotte (and, at one point, "Lottelita") by the narrator, Humbert Humbert.

I know someone named Lotte. She pronounces it Low-ta. I think it sounds really cool when it's pronounced that way.

I think Lotte is a great name! It's not childish, just lovely! In Dutch we pronounce it as lot-ah.

About the 'LAH-tee vs. LAH-tah', I believe 'LAH-tee' is simply the 'English' version of the name. That's how English speaking people would pronounce it if they just read it. In the Dutch and German language however, it is 'LAH-tah'.

Little Lotte is a fairy tale character mentioned in the musical "The Phantom of the Opera" ("Little Lotte thought to herself, 'Am I fonder of dolls, or of goblins, of shoes, of riddles, of frocks.") but here, it's pronounced "LAH-tee". I'm not sure if it's just a mispronunciation by the actors--although I like LAH-tee better than LAH-tah.

Lotte is the young lady whom the main character loves (and eventually suicides because of) in Goethe's 'The Sorrows of Young Werther'.
