    Nanami for a first name... am I totally crazy?

    Nanami is a rather exotic name, and I've always restricted it to middle name use before now. BUT... I can't deny I am in love with everything about the name. So much so that I really want to use it for a FN. I feel like it could be done; foreign names don't seem as odd in this day and age. I am looking for opinions though!

    I doubt many of you will like the name itself style-wise, but is Nanami too foreign for a first name? (pron. "nah-nah-mee")

    Potential nicknames: Mia (favorite), Nana, Nami
    moving to new account with username I like more... since we can't just change them

    If you have Japanese heritage I think it's fine, otherwise, no.

    I don't think it works well as first name. It's a lovley name but I think there would a lot of pronunciation and spelling issues, plus some plain confusion.

    I don't think it works well as a first name either.

    A lot of kids call their grandmothers Nana. That connotation might embarrass a child.
