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

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.(olivia. seventeen. film & philosophy student, worryingly maternal! in love with my kitty, majestically named shura)

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

Kids can be harsh and if they want to tease, they'll find something to pick out regardless of whether or not your daughter's called Fatima. I don't like it personally because I just don't think it's a pretty name (and the 'fat' at the beginning would be the first thing bullies would notice... Fati wouldn't be a nice nickname either) but I could see it easily suit a woman past her 20s.
I know of one Fatima who is of Indian origin and who is Muslim, she's around 13 years old. I can't tell you if she gets picked on for it as I don't know her personally!
