Is it ok for a Muslim to have a Hebrew name?

I like the name Aliza (alee-za) for a daughter, it is Hebrew and means joyful. I have found online that this is a name used mainly by Jewish ladies and a few Muslim ones. My question is, is it ok for a muslim to have a Hebrew name that seems to be more associated with Jews? may this cause any practical problems for her?

    I personally don't see a problem with it all, just because it mostly associated with the Hebrew people, doesn't mean that a Muslim can't use it. My name is French, but I am not from France, so I don't think it really matters. Most people don't even really think about where names come from anyway, so I think you're safe there. If you like the name, then go with it, it is a very pretty, unique name after all.

    That's Yiddish not "Hebrew".
