Happy Name Day, Otýlie! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Otýlie.  Happy name day, Otýlie!
The name Otýlie is the Czech variation of Ottilie, which is the feminine form of the German name Otto.  The name Ottilie means "prosperous in battle".  Ottilie, though it has German roots via Otto, has a distintively delicate French feel. It is rarely heard today, though it had some popularity in the US in the 1880s.
