It makes me think of the word Harlot. Other kids would make fun of her.

And, I assumed it was a boys' name until I read your post.

I get two associations with this name. The first is Jean Harlow, which isn't necessarily bad (she was beautiful) but makes the name a little sexual. My second association is Harry Harlow, a psychologist who did experiments with baby monkeys that investigated attachment theory. My guess is that most people won't have that association, but because of my degree in psychology, I do. Plus, there don't seem to be many nn options. Harley maybe, but I really dislike Harley.

Overall, I like this name more than most surnames on girls, but I personally wouldn't use it.

It's NMS. But it's unique so that's good!

I dont hate it but i think it could have some really negative connotations/nicknames
