I think its definitely useable.
This is one that flips back and forth for me as a legit option or just guilty pleasure, so here's my own reasons...
its a real name,
a long history of use on girls,
i like the connection to the moon/protector of women aspect of the mythology,
its both familiar and unusual at the same time.
Cons (these may not apply to you):
I'm Christian so it might be weird to use a mythology name...to me, mythology is just literature, but i know that to others its their religion and i don't want to offend someone with that choice.
I can't shake the "anime" feel the name has (which i found by searching people named Artemis on Facebook); i think amine is weird, so its not an association i want.
I would definitely end up nicknaming her Artie-Farty and that's just mean, but i know myself enough to know i couldn't resist the rhyme.
For me, the cons outweigh the pros, but i still adore this name. I would love to meet a little girl named Artemis!I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

Artemis and the gang are completely usable. They would make quirky middle name choices that would spice up more traditional first names.All the best,
