Meaning of Otto
Otto is a German-originating name that means “wealthy” that is used as a first name and a surname. A timeless name, Otto was the name of the first monarch of the Holy Roman Empire, Otto the Great.
The name is perhaps best known for Otto von Bismarck, the unifier of Germany. But the name has come a long way from its association with calculating Otto von Bismarck (though I do love some Otto von Bismarck German unification history).
After a long hiatus out of the spotlight, likely due to World War 2 & its German connection, Otto is fully back in fashion.
Otto re-entered the U.S. top 1000 chart in 2011 and has rocketed up 600 spots in the last decade (per the Social Security Administration database). As a cool alternative to popular O-names like Oliver and Owen, I don’t expect Otto to slow down anytime soon.
