    Thank you all for your opinions!! My concerns were the same as all of yours, i think it is more so that it would be hard to picture on her rather than it being offensive or teasing potential.

    I live in NYC and know two people named Fatima. Nobody seems to have trouble with it. It's a beautiful name. I think of the pronunciation more as "FAH-tee-mah" rather than "FATeemah."

    It feels very Esatern European to me. But it's certainly not a bad thing.

    I think it's perfectly usable in English speaking countries, but I would be surprised to find a Fatima who's parents weren't Muslim or otherwise Arabic.

    I like the fah-TEE-mah pronunciation but the FAT-ih-mah pn - as in Fatima Whitbread - isn't very attractive to me.

    I drastically prefer Fahima or Farheen.

    I knew a number of girls with that name in my American High School. Very pretty.
    All were Muslim though.
