    Every one of these names on your list  are still popular and   in use today. The only name I have never heard of before is Otillia. I have just discovered it is of old german  and french origin and means "prosperity in battle". Ottie for short!  Otillia is a varient of Odile.

    Any of those names are usable especially since they're among your ancestors.

    I think they're all usable. I especially like Louis and Elias. The girls' names are slightly too long and frilly for my taste, but they all have good nickname options (Tilly, Kate, Ellie/Lisa/Beth).

    I dislike Ottilia (and Otilla) because of its closeness to Atilla (the Hun).

    Katharina is lovely.

    Elisabetha is also very pretty.

    Not a fan of Kaspar (or Caspar).  I just think ghost .  Kas is a nice nickname, though.

    Louis is okay.  I don't care for it said as Louie.  I like Loo-iss.

    Elias is great!  Eli is a great nickname.

    I'd use any of them, other options could be to use variations. 

    Ottilia: Otto, Tilly

    Katharina: Katherine, Katya, Kasia, Rina

    Elisabetha: Elisabeth, Beth, Libby, Elisa, Elise, Elsa

    Kaspar: Kase, Kassia

    Louis: Great as is, but could be Louisa for a girl. 

    Elias: Another great as it is, but could be Ella, Ellie, Elia, Eli
