I love that it has such wonderful, special meaning for you and your dh...you're not just using it "because it sounds nice phoenetically"...kwim? SO i say, don't let the phoenetic sound stop you...AND chances are the more you say it, the more it will "go together"...kwim?
at first i thought of two things when I heard Ginger...Gilligan's Island, and strippers. (i'm sorry...don't throw tomatos at me please!) however...i must say, it is SUPER cute as a little girl's name, or even as an elderly lady's name..."we're going over to Grammy Ginger's house today!"....it's just that inbetween age, the mid twenties to 40's i guess...dh and I always try to make sure if we give a first name that seems too cutesy for a grown women in a serious career ("hello I am Lucy/Piper/Heidi and I will be your attorney...") that we give them a very solid middle name they could use instead if they needed...Katla is absolutely beautiful, and could always be NN'ed to "Kate" or such, or used just as it is as a first if she wanted....
I think you should do it!!
