I am happy to have discovered this name, which I have added to my long list of female names, as one that I could potentially use for a character. My only concern is that most people won't know how to pronounce it.

Wonderful meaning, somewhat exotic, makes me think of "dear" so that is also cute. But when said out loud, something about it is a bit difficult to pronounce.
