You can certainly do this if you want. However, you will have to put up with the fact that the accent mark will simply be ignored most of the time in the United States. There are still a lot of official records in the US which don't even have the capacity to include them. You will note that they are never found in the SSA lists, for instance. And sometimes they are replaced by an apostrophe (Ame'lie) because that's the closest people can get to printing one given the fonts available to them.
