No, I don’t think it’s too heavy for a little girl.
I’ve posted this many times: I think [name]Ophelia[/name] is an absolutely gorgeous name, and it is so unusual but I don’t think that it’s too out there. I firmly believe that [name]Ophelia[/name] from [name]Hamlet[/name] was a strong character who has been thus mistreated and misrepresented - after reading [name]Lisa[/name] Klein’s “[name]Ophelia[/name]” I feel like it should be an inspiriation for any girl who is going through a hard time, or any girl at all.
As for the surname, I’m personally not sure. I agree that any name has the possibility of being a tease-enducer: frankly, I agree that they’ll find a way. The thing that irritates me is that it’s o-phee-lee-a, not o-feel-eya or whatever. >.>;
So I’m all for it. It’s beautiful, different and has substance.
NOTE: as for the (ped)[name]Ophelia[/name] jokes, I’m not sure. There are lots of ‘ophelias’, if you will, and I personally didn’t think of it at all. It would make a fantastic middle name just as much as a first name, too!
