Carri Kessler told BuzzFeed News that the couple knew immediately when their first daughter was born they wanted to name her Hadley.

For their second baby girl, the only name they agreed on was Ottilie, an uncommon name of German origin.

“Sure, it was a little unique, but so beautiful,” Kessler said. “A former colleague who lived in the UK was named Ottilie and I loved it from the first day i heard it.”

However, after their daughter was born, the Kesslers found themselves running into some issues with her name. Namely, people weren’t pronouncing it the way they expected.
