Comments for UME:

I've never met anyone named just "Ume" and just a few named "Umeko" and those I've met by that name are kind of on the older side (senior citizens or close to it). I guess it would give the same image as someone in North America named Mildred or Phyllis or something.

There is a character named Ume in the anime Kimi Ni Todoke. She complains that she does not like her name because it is a "grandma name" and that her grandmother chose it for her. Everyone calls her Kurumi-chan for her surname Kurumizawa and she keeps a list of people she dislikes for calling her by her first name.

It's interesting the meaning can be devotion, as in the series she has an obsessive crush on a boy and very cunningly keeps the other girls from dating him for years.

I think it's very cute, it has a soft sound but apparently would be old-fashioned in Japan.
