Looking for thoughts on girl names

Looking for honest opinions on the name Elke for a baby girl. We are both fond of the name, but it was haphazardly mentioned to a few family members with very unfavorable response. Looking for some outside perspective!

It's certainly unique. I like it. A lot.

I like it. I think of it more initially as a boy's name. My initial reaction was negative, but the more I said it, the more I liked it, so I think it will be a name that grows on people.

Beautiful baby girl born 8/13/2012. Little star baby lost at 10 weeks pregnant, 12/18/2013. Rainbow baby girl born 12/22/2014.
