In terms of popularity (not sure where you are), in 2010, according to Office of National Statistics (England and Wales) it was number 372 on the baby girl list, with 122 babies named this for that year. So not popular, no.
I don't know why, but I always used to associate this name with someone arrogant...i didn't like the name...then I met a girl named Stella and she is an AMAZING person and ever since then I adore this name!
I think it's really really pretty and not at all popular as far as I know.
Actually had it in mind for my baby too if it's a girl =)
