Feels a little dated to me, but it's nice enough.

When we first met, my OH had a dog named Roxanne (called Roxie)... The first thing I did when I heard the name was sing the song. This was 7 years ago, though. My nephew is 14 and knows the song. My kids know the song because they've heard it dozens of times (although they don't know what the song is about yet!). It still plays on the radio where I live and was just used in a local commercial. If I were you, I'd ask cool parents of grade school kids whether or not their kids know the song. I think it's a timeless one and may have ruined that name forever. haha. But heck, it's a good song, and it's a good name.

I don't like it or any variations of it, personally.

I also think of the song and the first image that comes to mind is a girl with crazy 80s hair and a neon windbreaker. Sorry.

Even if the name does retain a little bit of its 'red light' reputation over the decades, I still think your daughter will still be her own person and will be known for her personality and behaviour, not her name. I can picture maybe close friends when she's grown up poking fun (endearingly of course) at her name if they know the reputation, but thats harmless of course.. I can't see there being any further harm than that really. x
