After much deliberation, Carri Kessler and her husband finally decided on the perfect name for their new daughter. The only problem is that they picked it three months after she was born.

Kessler and her husband decided early on that their daughter-to-be would be named Ottilie, a name of a friend from the U.K. that they always found to be beautiful. Once baby Ottilie was born, the new mom had reservations, but decided to just commit to the name. As time passed, however, Kessler discovered that her gut may have been right all long. Ottilie doesn't quite have the same ring to it when said with an American accent, not to mention that no one, including Carri's grandmother, could seem to remember how to pronounce the name. Soon Kessler knew she, in her own words, "f-ed up."
