オテスタル
Explanation:
Although this is a French town's name, its origin was German. So, I don't really know how to handle such a complicated situation (whether the transliteration rules should be English, French or German).

Here, I'm venturing a tentative German rendition. The "th" is pronounced exactly like "t" in German.

On what the town痴 name may possibly mean
