Thoughts on these names?
I have been going through my family tree and found some names I like. I just wanna know how useable these names are/people’s opinions my background does go to Germany so that where some of these ancestors names are from.

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
