I actually love Dorothy, especially using “Dot” as a nickname. I always thought that was cute. Or I just loved Animaniacs too much as a child.

Honestly, I don’t care for the name Dorothy. And I really only think of the Wizard of Oz when I hear it. But it shouldn’t matter what everybody else thinks. You should pick the name you love! I LOVE Nora and Claire. I love that Dorothy holds sentimental value, but if you don’t love it, perhaps that isn’t the name for you? Maybe it would work as a middle name somehow as you said?

I’m not a big fan of Dorothy, but I think Dottie would be cute for a baby!

I think it sounds like a grandma’s name (sorry) but calling her Dot or Dori is cute. I would probably use it as a middle name and do something more contemporary for the first name.

I only associate it with The Wizard of Oz, but as a name I like it. Maybe it’s time for Dorothy to have a comeback!

My Mother-In-Law is named Dorothy but goes by Dee. When I was an intern, my supervisor’s name was also Dorothy. She goes by her middle name of Beth. Personally, I wouldn’t name a child that.

I love the name Dorothy, it was my grandmother’s name as well.  Dottie would be a cute nickname!  My grandma’s nickname was Gert… not sure how that one happened! Lol

I don’t care for it as a first name but I love the meaning behind it and I think it would make a cute middle name.

My grandmother’s name is Dorothy and everyone calls her Dot, so for me the name holds the connotation of an older woman, but if you love it- go for it!

It was my Mom Mom’s name, too. But honestly, it’s just not my cuppa tea. Maybe as a middle name?
