It's a beautiful name. I'm not a huge fan of the place Atlanta so I wouldn't use it...but if you deem Atlanta, GA a fine namesake—more power to you!

My daughters name is Atlanta and I love it. The reason we picked the name is kind of silly my husband is a huge Atlanta Braves and Falcons fan and threw the name out as a joke but I fell in love with it and think it is a strong name and she is a very strong girl.
