All names were made up at some point in time. I actually don't hate it. I've heard much, much worse.

It sounds like an elfish name!
It's cute. It could be Scandinavian maybe?

I just looked it up and its real. It says it means elm. I agree with the other people that said it sounded like it is from LOTR lol.
