Besides where is the fun in using a HP related name when not even a HP fan would make the connection. I'm a HP fan, but names like Wilhelmina, Beatrix, etc. don't remind me of HP. The only other names that do are Hermione, Andromeda, Minerva, and I can't think of any more.
    umm... Ginny (Ginevra), Luna, Helga (Hufflepuff), Rowena (Ravenclaw), Lavender, Cho, Fleur - are all somewhat often mentioned female characters, I could list more

    I think any HP fan (but I am a HUGE fan of HP, it was our wedding theme) would know Nymphadora (not saying she should use it), but I guess it depends on how big of a fan you are or where you drawn the line between fan and obsessed.

    Basically I think it's a little inaccurate to say that an HP fan would recognize the name. If anything, the OP might get annoyed by people commenting "oh you must be a Harry Potter fan!"
