The terms 'Alpha Male' and 'Alpha Dog Dominant' stops me from seeing this as a viable option for both girls and boys. Those connotations are way too manly for a girl and, in all honesty, set up far too high of a manly expectation for a boy who might not want to be like that. So, for me, this name is a no go, but I reckon it'd make for a pretty interesting middle name.
