I feel like this would always be associated with Doctor Zhivago? I think it's kind of harsh to give a kid a name that's going to be associated with one person or fictional character, and that they might not even like or want to be associated with. Giving a kid a unique name is one thing, and giving them a namesake is another, but if it's going to impact how people think of them that much? I don't know.

Maybe as a middle name, but it's more than a little weird.
