    If her name in the show was supposed to be Dorothy, why did everyone call her Tootie.

    cause it was a nickname that was given to her. Once she got older, she used it sometimes but it wasn't until the reunion that she actually wanted everyone to call her Dorothy

    Personally I liked Tootie better than Dorothy. It was a unique nickname. Plus I liked the way Nat said it when she was upset with her.
