I agree with you. If you can say Tamara or any other three plus syllable name, you can say this.

I disagree that it's too cumbersome. It rolls off the tongue beautifully! And Tami makes a cute nickname.

I really like this. But when I told my mom, she gave me a look similar that of a confused cat, so I don't think I'll ever give this name to a child, lol.
