Otylia is a name with German origins and the meaning of Otto is 'prosperity'. It is a female variation of the name Otto, which was a name given to a person who fought bravely and prospered in battle. Otto was a boys name, recorded as early as the 7th century. The translation of 'prosperity' did not just refer to success on the battlefield, but also in that person's life. Names beginning with 'aud', such as Audo, Odo and Otto, were names that referred to a man achieving a certain level of prosperity. To be prosperous is to have wealth and success, to never struggle for money. Otylia, therefore, can also be translated as 'prosperous one'. There are many variations of this name, mainly in the German language, such as Ottilie.
