It’s awful as all get out. Even Dotty means crazy and ugly.

I love it. My daughter is Dorothy though she tends to go by Thea (or Thee) most of the time. Dottie is an awesome nickname.

I love Dorothy nn Dottie, its a very classic name from the early days. I also love Dorothea. But Dorothy nn Dottie is just darling imo. Great choice! GL

To say someone is "dotty" means they’ve gone crazy. That’s not awesome, that’s cruel.

It’s not my personal favorite, but it’s a perfectly good name. I think even if people don’t like it now, it’s because it is a bit old-fashioned. But "old lady names" are becoming very popular, and this is one that is ddefinitely giong to become more popular with little girls. 5 years ago Ruby seemed like an odd name to use on a little girl to me, but now I think it’s sweet because it’s become more familiar to me as a little girl’s name.

I think it’s perfect and I disagree that the nickname Dotty is cruel, I think it is really cute and it’s been around as a nick name for a long time.

If you want something similar there’s Charlotte nn Lottie.

I love Dorothy, and Dottie is so adorable! Very pretty, classy name. A breath of fresh air! Absolutely gorgeous. :-)

~God bless!

How about Theodora?

My name is Dorothy! It’s the first time I’ve seen on these polls. I’ve always been very happy with my name. Mostly I get the whole thing but a couple of my close family and friends call me Dot.

All I see is the dinosaur from The Wiggles. It’s a chavvy name that some stuck at home mom would use because that’s what the other kids are watching on TV at the moment.

Well I have no idea what the wiggles is not sure that’s made it to the uk .

I’m from the UK and I’ve also never heard of the Wiggles. Any name you choose will have some connection, good or bad, to characters from books, TV shows, films and from history. It would be silly to let that put you off.

Not my favorite name, but I don’t hate it either. Vintage names are coming back
