    I don't see why it would be "out there". London and Brooklyn are common names. The fact it's the name of a city isn't a turn off to the name, but the potential colon jokes (which have already begun) are.

    I think it would make a beautiful, meaningful, honorific middle name. As a first name, as previous posters have said, I might think of ulcerative colitis. Anyone who hasn't had GI problems/isn't in a medical profession might never ever think of it, though, and it is a pretty sound, also reminds me of Cosima. I say use it, but really think about which spot you want it in.

    I do have to agree with others that it sounds rather medical, but I think the meaning and history behind it are lovely, so if all that doesn't matter to you, you can still use it happily. Perhaps you could consider it as a middle?

    I grew up in a small Midwestern town and I got the pronunciation on the first try. I think it works, it is different but not out there. Plus the family significance is nice. Go for it! =-)

    I'm not a fan of the name, perhaps it's partly because it sounds so similar to colon but it could also be because I know one of the potential meanings includes the word "grandpa [= mountain]", which I don't care for in a girls name.
