    I actually really like it, but the connotations of colonialism would make it unusable for me personally.

    I've always thought Mayflower was a beautiful name! Its not too out there, since she could go by May.

    I love it as a middle name, but it's not very wearable as a first name.

    In theory, fine; in reality, not fine. I do think it holds potential as a family nickname, though. I once thought of a Margo called Magpie, so I don't see why a Mary or May couldn't be Mayflower...

    No, not usable. Besides the pilgrim connotation, it's far too literal and cutesy.
