Should we name our baby girl Roxanne? Why or why not?

We're expecting our first child in January and we're pretty sure we're going to name her Roxanne, but we wanted to hear other people's opinions of the name. We like it because it's a bit unusual without being too weird, it works in many cultures, it can be sexy, modern, and strong and also feminine, old-fashioned, and romantic, and the nickname Roxy is awesome.
We know about the song by The Police and we're not too concerned about that (but maybe we should be). So, what do you think of the name? See any potential problems? If you're not a fan, feel free to suggest something else you think might work.
