I would hope no one would be so cruel as to basically name their child after a personality flaw/psychological disorder. Highly highly unusable. I understand it has a mythological background and a not-so-bad meaning but the negative connotation is far too strong.

This isn't that bad as a GP. I'd never use in real life, but for a character, yes.

Even the meaning does not help - daffodil ! What boy wants to be named after a yellow flower ?

If it didn't have the arrogant connotation it actually wouldn't be half bad. Just a bit too alliterative at the end like Assisi. It's lispy.
