The actress was named Uma because her dad was apparently a professor of Hindu mythology at a university. It's a pretty name.

Uma Thurman also has three brothers with equally interesting names: Mipam, Dechen and Ganden.

Quite an odd name, wouldn't you want to name your child something a little longer and more exiting?

I'd consider this name, but only because of the actress.

I saw a film with the actress Uma Thurman and thought that it would be a nice name for a baby girl. Two years later I gave birth to a litte girl, which we named Uma Isabella.

This means "horse" in Japanese. There isn't anything wrong with horses but it's ridiculous on a person, it makes you think of someone who isn't attractive. I have many Japanese friends and they always laugh about the actress' name because it seems so ridiculous. It might work outside of Japan, but I really wouldn't use it.
