I, personally, can't see it on anything other than the dragon in Eragon, but it does sound very pretty.

Agree I think it's such a pretty name and she is such a small bible character that I wouldn't have even thought of that

I Don't see what's makes this name SO unusable. I mean, just because of one character who did little more than lie about a tax payment. It's still a lovely name.
