I think it's a sweet notion and no heritage wouldn't be a deciding factor for me, however, honestly I don't care for the name. It's your LO though so it only matters that you guys will love it and can see her happy with it as an adult.

it doesn't matter (: I think its totally breaking a mold "oh that's a Mexican name" it doesn't matter as long as you love it, people will probably ask you if you have any Mexican/Spanish in you but by the time she grows up I think a lot more people will be doing the same thing! I love it! good luck.
