QuotesEdit

I used to get laughed at by the other witches, you know? But when I sang a magic song, the fairies would make a rainbow for me. It was always amazing and beautiful.

Lotte, The Enchanted Parade.

I know the reason why you wanted to become a witch. It was because you saw Shiny Chariot's magic, and she cast a spell on you when you were little, right? That's why I think you should have this.

Lotte, The Enchanted Parade.

There, there. But because of that, you can do some stuff I could never do. You don't look back and have an unwavering determination. It's what makes you you.

Lotte, The Enchanted Parade.

Akko wouldn't run away! She's pouring everything she has into making what she believes in happen! She may be stubborn, but that's what makes her Akko!

Lotte to Diana, Samhain Magic.

Hey, Sucy... why do you think Akko can keep it up? She flounders and suffers, and yet she keeps reaching out for things beyond her grasp.
Isn't that just because she's an idiot? And a stubborn one at that.
But that part of her is amazing.

Lotte to Sucy, Samhain Magic

EtymologyEdit

  • "Lotte" is a short form "Charlotte", the French feminine diminutive of "Charles", from the Germanic name Karl, which was derived from a Germanic word meaning "man". However, an alternative theory states that it is derived from the common Germanic name element hari meaning "army, warrior".[2] "Yanson" is medieval English in origin. The derivation is from the Middle English given name Jan, a variant of John, itself from the Hebrew 'Yochan' meaning, "The Lord is gracious"[3]
    • "Lotte" can also be a short form of "Liselotte" (Contraction of "Lise" and "Charlotte"),[2] or Annelotte (meaning "Gracious, sweet and bitter, sad").[4]
    • "Yansson" might be reference to known Finnish artist Tove Jansson, the creator of Moomin characters.
