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.
I love the name Carmella. We decided to name our daughter Carmella after my grandma Carmen. I am looking for another child by the name & spelling Carmella. I make children CD's and accidentally made 2 extra CD's. if you want them please email me and I will mail them to you for FREE.

Maybe as a middle name....def not a first name.
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.
