    Thank you guys for your opinions. I think that it's true that with the many unique names parents are using, more and more names are being taken seriously, as well as unusual names.
    And I probably would end up using it with a common mn, so she could have a backup name if she wanted something more common than Sunday.

    I completely agree! Also, I think of Susanna/h first as a classic biblical name, it doesn't seem that Southern Belle to me as opposed to say, Savannah, Scarlett or Delilah. Also it means Lily!
